Objection lodged by Sheriff YC against Regional United

Sheriff YC have lodged an appeal against their exit from the FAI Junior Cup a week ago at the hands of Limerick club Regional United.

Regional came back in dramatic fashion having been 0-2 down with five minutes remaining in their quarter final clash with the Dublin club.

However, goals from Pat McDonagh and a penalty from Kieran O’Connell in injury time rescued the match before O’Connell netted a second penalty in extra-time to send the hosts through.

However, it has emerged that the objection centres around the eligibility of the player who won the second penalty, Sosuke Kimura. Kimura has been playing in the Limerick District League for the last three seasons with both Aisling Annacotty and Regional United.

The news of the appeal was broken locally by Limerick soccer correspondent Michael Aherne on Saturday.

It is believed Sheriff YC were made aware that the player had not been properly registered upon arrival in Limerick three years ago. A hearing will take place in Dublin on Thursday.

Regional were due to face fellow Limerick club Aisling Annacotty in the semi final of the competition on Saturday, April 6th in Jackman Park at 5pm. The game has now been put in doubt and the appeal will be heard in the coming days.
