The concept for this new league came about when Portadown Chairman Lyn Jamison met with Dundalk coach and club Manager John McGahon at Fitzwilliam last year. Portadown had already formed links with Dundalk club several years earlier when the two clubs played friendly matches against each other home and away. The plan was formulated to start the new league and a committee was formed from representatives of each of the participant clubs. After several meetings during the past year the league is now underway and it is hoped that other clubs close to either side of the border may be introduced next year.
