Kilmacud Crokes have informed the GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) that they will be countering Glen’s objection to the clubs’ All-Ireland SFC final last Sunday.
According to the Irish Examiner, Crokes have no intention of playing a replay and have today informed the CCCC that they will be challenging Glen’s claim that a rule had been breached.
Glen have appealed on the basis that Kilmacud Crokes had more than 15 players on the field of play for a period of additional time when they were attacking. Crokes won the game by two points.
The CCCC will now organise a hearing, which could happen earlier next week. There, both clubs will have the opportunity to put forward their case. The fixtures body will then make a recommendation, although the parties can contest it to the Central Appeals Committee and failing that the independent Disputes Resolution Authority.
The news came this evening as Derry manager Rory Gallagher has included Glen’s Conor Glass and Ethan Doherty in his team to face Limerick in their Allianz Division 2 opener in Owenbeg tomorrow.
