Regional and Westport appeals are unsuccessful

The appeals of Regional United and Westport in relation to their elimination from the FAI Junior Cup have been dismissed by the Football Association of Ireland Senior Council today after both clubs appeals were heard last night.

The FAI Disciplinary Control Unit Committee made a swift decision as it was expected to take up to three days originally. The news was provided on the FAI website and Striker Online this afternoon as a statement was released by the appeals committee.

As stated, Regional can now decide to take the case to the Court of Arbitration and have until next Wednesday to make the decision. It is expected that Regional will take the option and fight today’s outcome.

Westport’s appeal centred around the eligibility of Aisling striker Aaron Murphy who they believed to be suspended for the game. The striker scored the winner but had served a suspension locally leading up to the game.

Sheriff YC’s successful original appeal surrounded the eligibility of Sosuke Kimura who it appears did not receive the relevant international clearance upon arrival in Ireland two years ago to play for Aisling Annacotty.

As it stands, Sheriff YC will host Aisling Annacotty at the AUL Complex on Sunday April 28th at 2pm. However, this is subject to the next step taken by both Regional and Westport.
