Fierce battle: Cliftonville’s Joe Gormley takes on St Patrick’s Athletic ace Conor Kenna in the Setanta Cup back in 2012

Former Sligo Rovers and Cliftonville boss Gerard Lyttle says Danske Bank Premiership clubs would need a lot more detail and reassurances before they can consider giving the green light to All-Ireland proposals.

Twenty of the 22 top-flight clubs in the north and south have written to their respective Associations requesting that a proposal for an All-Island League be submitted to Uefa for consideration.

Dungannon Swifts and Cliftonville are the two clubs that did not sign the letter.
