Seconds Reinstated to Reserve Cup after Successful Appeal

The Club has received notification from the Meath & District League that it has been reinstated to replay its recent Reserve Cup fixture against Summerhill. The original game was ‘lost’ in a penalty shoot-out but Celtic were denied a good goal as a result of an inaccurate interpretation of the relevant rule by the referee in relation to one of the sudden death kicks. The game had ended 3 – 3 and was level also after the compulsory five penalty kicks.

The Committee has expressed satisfaction in relation to this decision and Manager Alan McCormack has thanked both the MDL and the local Branch of the ISRS for their support in seeing that justice was done.
