Summer move frozen out, says chief McKendry

 

By Graham Luney

The Irish League is not yet ready to embrace summer football, according to Coleraine chairman Colin McKendry.

The Bannsiders chief and his boss Oran Kearney are big supporters of switching the season to the summer months but there remains significant opposition to such a move.

In June the Irish FA unveiled a five-year strategy proposing a "tweaking of the season" with clubs playing in May and June and the Northern Ireland Football League is consulting clubs on potential changes.

Fans of a summer switch argue that clubs' performances in Europe would improve, generating more income but the winter fixtures, despite the threat of disruption due to snow and ice, retain popular support.

"Like Oran I do believe that moving the season to the summer months is the right way to go but I'm not sure there is sufficient support for that to happen any time soon," said McKendry.

"I don't see dramatic, radical change happening as there is still resistance to summer football."
