Tyrone Condemn ‘Ugly Scenes’ At Weekend In Statement

A game in the Tyrone Senior Championship at the weekend led to absolute anarchy.

Twenty yellow cards were issued along with six players getting their marching orders, and if that wasn’t enough, the unfortunate Sean Cavanagh ended up in hospital after suffering facial injuries.

The match between Edendork and Moy drew widespread criticism across the country, and Tyrone GAA have seen fit to issue a statement on the violence, along with that which saw up to thirty players and others engage in a mass brawl at a Stewartstown and Strabane intermediate fixture.

“Following on from the weekend Tyrone club championship matches, the Tyrone county committee wish to state that all or any disciplinary action will be a matter of consideration by the Tyrone CCC (Competitions Control Committee),” said the the Tyrone statement.

“Based on the referee’s report plus examination of the video-recording of the games, the matters arising will be dealt with in an urgent manner and following due process as stipulated in the rules of the association and the Official Guide, the CCC will determine the relevant penalties.

“We would wish to condemn all of the ugly scenes of unwarranted violence. We wish also to extend good wishes to all players who incurred injuries – whether accidentally or otherwise.”

The footage will prove crucial to punishing those involved in the embarrassing scenes, with Tyrone GAA yet to deliberate on what course of action to take.
