Footballer Allegedly Bit In The Neck In Ulster Club Championship Game

Footballer Allegedly Bit In The Neck In Ulster Club Championship Game
By PJ Browne Updated

Crossmaglen progressed to the semi-finals of the Ulster Club Championship with a win over Erin's Own Cargin on Sunday.

The game featured a second half melee, which Cargin manager John Brennan claimed was sparked by one of his players being bitten.

Speaking to The Irish News, Brennan said Michael McCann was bitten on the neck. The player himself later reiterated his manager's claim.

We had a player who was bitten out there.

Michael McCann was bitten on the neck and that’s why the fisty-cuffs started out there and they had another player who came in and struck.

Crossmaglen manager Oisin McConville dismissed the allegation as 'ridiculous'.

It sounds ridiculous to me.

I would have thought that John would have been magnanimous in defeat and just take it on the chin, there were a lot of incidents we could all talk about. It was a very clean game given the competitiveness of it.
