Leitrim opt not to travel to London in April as they concede points

As expected, Leitrim will not be travelling to Ruislip to fulfil an outstanding fixture in this year’s Allianz National Football League.

The game had to be postponed at the start of March due to Storm Emma, and had not been rescheduled.

With the game not affecting the promotion race in Division Four, it was unlikely to be rescheduled given the costs association with Leitrim travelling over to London, and a trip to New York in the championship already looming for Benny Guckian’s side in early May.

But Leitrim have moved to resolve the uncertainty by conceding the game.

In fact, Sunday’s league game at home to Wicklow could be Leitrim’s final league game, given that the match against Waterford, which was postponed twice last weekend, has not yet been re-fixed and will not affect the battle for a top two position involving Laois and Antrim, with Carlow already promoted.

Sunday’s game throws-in at 3pm in Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada.
