There looks to be an end to the All-Ireland club football final involving Kilmacud Crokes and Watty Graham's GAC, with the Derry clubs withdrawing from talks around a replay of the final which Crokes had won on January 22.
After it was found that Crokes had had 17 players on the field towards the end of the match, Glen lodged a complaint and it was expected that the GAA would order a replay.
However, the club have since issued the following statement, withdrawing themselves from the hearing process:
"Watty Graham's GAC, Glen lodged an objection to the result of the All-Ireland club final because we believed that grounds existed for a replay to be held if Rule 6.44 had been broken.
"However, the club does not now believe that the opportunity is there for a replay to go ahead.
"Due to the ongoing proceedings we as a club now do not believe the conditions exist for a replay to be contested.
"Consequently, Watty Graham’s, Glen would like to withdraw from this process.
