This could well be a first…

Last Wednesday evening’s Dublin SFC clash between Skerries Harps and Thomas Davis saw a goal disallowed because a player wasn’t wearing his gum shield.

Thomas Davis forward Sean Fennelly thought he had registered a goal for his side, but when the referee saw Fennelly was not wearing a gum shield a free out was rewarded instead.

Skerries Harps ran out 3-7 to 1-10 winners in the end and, needless to say, their south Dublin counterparts were unhappy to see one of their goals being struck off.
