After their success in the Dublin SFC final yesterday, Ballymun Kickhams manager Brendan Hackett has joined the growing chorus of people looking for provincial championships for the 2020/21 season to be played at some point in the future.

Kickhams were very impressive as they saw off last year's winners Ballyboden St Enda's by 14 points.

The GAA confirmed in June that no provincial or All-Ireland club series will take place this year to allow players to recuperate before the start of the inter-county season in late October.

It means that as things stand, Corofin will be the defending Connacht and All-Ireland football champions heading into next season, despite losing their Galway crown yesterday.

Speaking after his side's victory at Parnell Park, Hackett said there's still a chance that something might happen.

"I heard something on the radio today coming in that a few clubs are starting to make noise about maybe January or February.

"You could run it off fairly quickly. In the early part of the (Dublin) championship there was a game every 10 days.

"But then people are saying players need a break too - what do you do?

"But yeah, it would be lovely to play. The way we're playing now I'd love to test ourselves out against clubs from other counties and other provinces if we got that far."
