C.C.C.C. investigating game that never was

Wexford G.A.A. continued their investigations into the game that never was when they met for a second time last Monday night.

Representatives of both clubs, Clongeen and Ballyhogue, were summoned to appear before the C.C.C.C., along with the match official.

Seven days earlier the C.C.C.C. held preliminary discussions into a game that never took place despite a match report being sent in by the appointed referee.

The Division 5B league game involving Clongeen and Ballyhogue failed to materialise when Clongeen were unable to field a side, but the officiating referee allegedly supplied a full report relating to the game.

This was despite the fact Clongeen having been unable to field a team, and would have conceded a walkover while also having a fine imposed.

Chairman of the C.C.C.C., Aidan O'Leary, said they hope to conclude their investigation next week when their findings will be announced.

Meanwhile, the Wexford referees met on Wednesday night but no discussion took place on this most infamous of games that never took place.

There will be keen interest in the outcome of the deliberations of the C.C.C.C.
