The number of players which left this year runs a very close line to the percentage fall off from year to year in the last couple of years in the inter county game.

The players are not peripheral , they are players who played some part in a competitive game in the league or championship in 2017

When you look at Derrys drop to div 4, player turnover has to be a role. Derry are top of the table with 19 non returnees this year. And I have been told thats the same number that left last year in 2017 and the same tge year before . For a county like Derry which I would say would have not a massive playing number , that is a massive reason for drop to div 4. Hopefully we see Doire back soon a great football county with great football people.
Its the smaller counties with smaller playing pop which really could suffer. Cork have lost 18, a massive lost, but Cork has one of the biggest football player numbers in the country. Counties like Longford who have lost 12, leitrim 13, london 14, Sligo 12, Wexford 17 that is a massive number for those counties. The GAA should do more.

Fermanagh have one of the lowest non returnees this year but in the last 2 to 3 years they have lost allot of players.. Remeber when Fermanagh played v Dublin in 2015 quater final. 20 players from that Fermanagh panel on that day are now not on the Fermanagh panel now. How does a team compete when it has such turnover. If the Dubs lost 20 players in 3 years how would they compete.
