A Wicklow club has won its appeal over failing to field in a refixed senior football championship match.

Kiltegan initially played Hollywood in the Wicklow SFC at Baltinglass, but a power cut saw the lights go out and the game had to be rescheduled.

Kiltegan gave a walkover in the refixture citing that they had too many players away and wouldn’t be able to field.

However, the Wicklow CCC were given a charge of conduct which discredits the association, but the club appealed the matter stating that they were tried by social media.

Leinster Council reviewed the matter when it was brought to their attention and have found the Wicklow CCC to have been wrong in their findings.

Kiltegan felt aggrieved that they were only given two days notice for the re-fixture and Leinster Council agreed which means the club will not have to pay the €500 fine imposed on them.
