Tyron to investigate the fight after five players were sent off


The Tyrone County board is due to begin investigating a fight that disrupted one of its occasions, the Division 1 finals in the football league.

The Clash of Dromor and Erigal Ciran sparked violence during the finishing stages in Shinton on Saturday.

Five players were sent in before the order was returned and Dromore retained the title with a four-point victory over the defending champion.

Neil Kelly and Ein Kelly were shown red cards as well as pair Dromor John McNab and Paul McHugh. Erigal finished with 12 men after Ben McDonell picked up a second yellow card.

"Otherwise the sports game was interrupted by a short but unacceptable series of events in the closing stages," said Tyron PRO Eugene McConnell.

"The Tyrone Competition Control Committee will await the referee's report and a full investigation will be carried out."

Ryan McClucker's second-half goal was the vital result of the day between the sides after St Duppen returned from a two-point deficit, with Peter Hart firing a penalty for Erigal.

For Dromore, the success of the 1-10 to 1-6 title was the culmination of a solid response to the neighbors' heavyweight championship defeat and eventual champion Trilik.

For Erigal, it was a case of disgusting reflection on painful defeats in both the league and 2019 championship finals.

Meanwhile, in the relegation play-off, Australian Rules star Connor McKenna scored a second half for Eglish as they maintained their Division 1 status with a 2-09 to 1-10 victory over Eddendorck.
