this year cork are looking very promising to win the new york championship, so they would be a good club to consider. others that will probably make good runs for the cup are lietrim and down and i suppose tyrone. if you go on the nygaa website they have contacts for the clubs.

mickeyfinn - Always nice to see good players coming to town no matter who they play for. Go to and I would suggest you send an e-mail to any of the clubs. Best teams are Leitrim, Cork, Tyrone, Down, Cavan. Cork have had a Wexford connection with Rory Stafford and Ciaran Lyng for the last few years. Rangers I believe in Intermediate also have a few Wexford lads. Good luck with whatever you decide.

Can anyone help me out here? Im aware of each team having the option to get six 60 day sanctions, is there a rule which allows one or two of those players to play back in ireland after the 60 days and then return to new york and play with the team they had played with previously??

There is such a rule. Clubs are allowed to bring back two players on weekend sanctions once they have played four games during the championship here. These players are allowed to play at home.

Thanks these two players have to be named when they get their sanction or is it decided later on in the year which two can go over and back?
