Teams of the 2021/22 Season:

LIMEIRCK Junior Soccer annual Team of the Season picks produced plenty of competition following a big response from the clubs for nominations.

As usual, the Premier League although reduced to six teams this time around, still caused most debate.

Quite a few names you would expect to see, missed a substantial number of games which pushed them down the pecking order

The difference between those who made the cut and those who didn’t was miniscule with Colm Walsh O'Loughlin and Blake Curran particularly unlucky following a great season for both.

Depending on numbers, the lineouts for the various divisions varies from 4-4-2 to 3-5-2 and any combination in between!

If you made the cut you obviously deserve it and likewise if you feel you or your team mates should have made the cut but didn’t, then you are probably equally correct.

Remember the process is far from scientific, but it does create conversation, which is no bad thing.
