State Of Lancashire Setup

(Oldest Posts First)

Was at the final on Saturday, Oisins beat Mitchels, who never got going at all. Game was meant to he the sunday Previous, but county board messed up and didnt play extra time in the semi so final had to be moved. Oisins played all their championship games on home soil, hardly fair at all. All matches wer reffed by the same person, surely theres someone else that can do it. Ref was very bias towards oisins, give them alot of soft frees in scorable positions and they got alot of the 50/50 decisions. Stone wall penalty wasnt given for mitchels either at a crucial point in the game, if they scored a goal it would have been a 4 point game, instead ref played on and surprise surprise they got a soft free at other end of pitch.

Yes I was at all the games this year, mitchels wer dominant in their 2 games against oisin and Brendan's but didnt turn up on the final, in saying that, the ref was very poor in his decisions against them, I believe oisins scored 9 points from frees, that's mostly down to the ref given oisins soft frees. Compare that to mitchels disciplined defending in the previous 2 games it's hard to see where the ref was coming from in awarding alot of the frees, he looked biased on the day to me from a neutral point of view. Believe there was alot of disruption caused towards mitchels from county board, partly down to a few of the county board members not even being in the country to make decisions, heard 1 main member has moved to Ireland, shambles of a setup. AND THE HURLING FINAL HAS BEEN CANCELLED TWICE NOW.

Sounds bad alright, as for the ref situation, do the county boards get any help from Dublin to run refereeing courses? Can't have one lad doing all the matches.

What county board, its non existent, the board members dont live in same country let alone county. They change fixtures at the drop of a hat, these are matters that are supposed to be dealt with at a CCC meeting but with a few emails it's all sorted suddenly. They treat players with no respect, telling them to shut up if they bring up a matter, there a disgrace!!!!

The Lancashire senior hurling final, which was originally fixed for 2 wks ago, was supposed to be played today, has been cancelled for a 3rd time once again, for whatever reason nobody's knows, my only reason from I can see is that a member of oisins is playing in the all Britain quarter final 2moro, (football), the same oisins that didnt have to play 1 championship game away from home this season. Sounds like oisins is running the county setup these days!!! Disgraceful!!!!

As far as i know Oisins have 1 county board member... hard to see how they could be running it. Definitely more to it than that, hurling final got fixed on Friday morning for a Saturday match barley 24hours notice for players hard to see how it could of went ahead.

How come they didnt play 1 championship game away then? The 1 person on the board is the fixture administrator, coincidence?? They lost in the All Britain anyway, bad representation for Lancashire 3 years in a row now

The first fixture was a home game the second was to be an away game if im correct but it was a dead rubber. Semifinal and final always in old bedians. Think they had to beat st Brendans twice down there as ref some how cocked up the scores in the first game and everyone at it including myself had it at Oisins 2 up. Heard they were unlucky today, any ither team in Lancashire would of been beatn as they've proved there better.

Why does the semi have to be in old bedians? Hough end or turn moss can do this fixture, or even greenbank in liverpool. If it's to do with facilities then why is it not an issue with fixtures for every other game of the season

Lancashire doesn't have its own county ground, it nominates club grounds for county games on an ad hoc basis, any other suggestion is wrong, you'll notice Lancashire play NHL county games in Dublin due to lack of facilities. Provision for clubs games on the basis of Old Bedians being a/the county ground is a red herring.
Maybe Oisins shouldn't have semi or final at home but where else has both the pitch size and facilities. That said high profile games have been held successfully at other venues in Lancashire. Get your objection in if you have an issue.
Oisins won the Championship fair and square to suggest otherwise is idiotic.
If the state of the Lancashire setup is that bad then put your name forward and do better.

I was at all the championship games, the consistency of the ref is questionable, he let's play go in all the games then in the final he suddenly blows up and awards simple frees in front of the goal, to oisins, all the time, 9 points from frees and be argued, and the mitchels defense was the same in the 2 games previous and disciplined and then suddenly it changed in the final, hows that possible. It's easy for a team to gain momentum when there getting easy frees, and the other to loose confidence as a result

As for joining the county board, they run on a dictatorship basis, keep any people that's new in the dark about important matters, like rearranging games at the drop of a hat, the hurling county final has been cancelled 3 times now, was there any CCC meeting to discuss this at all, and there was no CCC meeting to discuss the football final being changed.

So the county hurling final is finally on this Sunday, in Wavertree, Liverpool. Hardly a county pitch to host a final is it, what's the difference in this and the football, why can't the football championship games be played away from Old Bedians, make you wonder the influence the hierarchy have to suit the their favourite people??????

Disappointing to see Lancashire go another year without an All-Britain. It wasn't long ago when the champions would make short of work of Britain and claim a scalp or 2 from home as well. Oisins seem to have the right approach for Lancashire but their limitations get shown up once they leave the county.

Just read on Lancashire Facebook that the game between hope uni and John Moores uni is off 2day. If this is the case I cant see how the hurling final will go ahead tomorrow at wavertree, the pitch is bad when theres a light shower of rain, what's it gona be like after all the rain we've been having.

Must be pantomime season already, the circus act that is Lancashire county board continues, hurling final was cancelled today, that's the 4th time now in 6 wks. What makes it funny is there Facebook coverage makes them look really professional, it's far from the truth. Need changes at the top, big time.
