    Sligo fielding an ineligible player?

    https://twitter.com/sligorovers/stat...Sg4bJ0u2Q&s=19

    Sligo won the match 2-0 at the Showgrounds.

    Sounds a little bit like the issue with Sean Hargan for us back in the 00s. Sligo doing the same and questioning communications from the FAI.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    FAI are crap at updating lists to clubs at times. Wouldn't be surprised to see Sligo win this case.

    Sligo failed at registering one of their loan signings in the summer. Seems like these issues might be a trend.

    Brings back memories of nearly 20 years ago when we got deducted points for fielding Avery John and won our case on a technicality! Alas 4 years later we got deducted points for ineligible players and went down as a result. Think it was Gary Deegan as far as I can remember.
    Gary Cronin is he the right man to manage Longford Town?

    Last thing our European aspirations needed was that result to be over turned.

    How come this happens at least once every season. Staggering incompetence and just about sums up the levels of professionalism in the LOI. The rules are clear, they aren't secret, so the clubs are just plain incompetent

    Is there any word on the Shels/Pats game? Seems these 2 games will have a major impact on 4th place now….

    The second was 7 years later and it was for the late submission of information for licensing. Nothing to do with ineligible players.

    The player in question isn't listed here:
    https://www.sseairtricityleague.ie/n...xtures/id-4406

    Now that list might only be meant as information to the public, but it gives credibility to the allegation that there may have been contradictory communications.

    What was the suspension for? I assume yellow cards?

    I would have thought the FAI are only referring this to the disciplinary committee if they are sure that Sligo were properly notified. But then I’m probably giving them too much credit.

    No word. It's the only postponed fixture still not rescheduled yet, clearly the FAI are taking the outcome very carefully legally
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    The hearing only took place the other day. They can’t delay a decision for too long.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    It seems a follow up was sent / published by the league and the player was on the list, and Sligo missed that. If its confirmed that an updated list was sent before the game, the rule states a 3-0 win will be awarded to the opposition.

    I noticed that Shels v Pats game was also not re-scheduled, there could be another sting in the tail for that outcome, who knows, just odd it seems to be the only backlog game not yet re-fixed.

    Don't know the rules exactly, but you'd like to think that if that was the case, someone in FAI HQ would give Sligo a call to make sure they knew. Basic customer service.

    I wonder do any clubs do their own tally on yellow cards so that they can have fair idea when a player will be suspended?
    Seems in this case there is no dispute that he should’ve been suspended but the issue is what was communicated to Sligo and when.

    I’d guess if an updated list was sent before the game that had him suspended then Sligo may not have much comeback.
