Crusaders vice-chairman Mark Langhammer believes Danske Bank Premiership clubs have made the right move in seeking guidance from Uefa on the All-Island League proposals.

While the Irish FA remain firmly opposed to the plan, the Crues chief is arguing that debate on the issue should not be shut down.

It has emerged that 10 Irish League clubs have written to the IFA to request a proposal for an All-Island League is forwarded to Uefa. The letter has been signed by every Premiership club except Dungannon and Cliftonville.
