Leinster Schoolboy leagues announced

With the first series of schoolboy’s hockey fixtures getting underway this week, the Leinster school’s have released the divisions for 2009/10 and the format each respective league will take.

Senior A involves the five All-Ireland qualifiers playing on a home and away basis. Senior B sees each team play each
other once with the top two qualifying for a final.
The addition of Newpark to Junior A means each side plays each other once with a league final with Junior B working on the same basis.
The minor leagues work on the same basis while the U-13 A league works on a home and away basis. The B league produces four semi-finalists for a play-off series while C league pits the top two from the North and South sections against each other in semi-finals. This league features Donabate for the first time while junior schools Whitechurch, Rathgar, Taney and the returning Headfort.
