Sheriff YC’s Premier B have been removed from the Saturday section of the Leinster Junior Cup.
The Sheriff second string were due to play Aston Village in the prestigious contest, but were removed from the Saturday side of the draw after appearing in front of the LFA on Tuesday night.
Aston Village lodged a protest and it proved successful. There complaints were based around the fact as a Premier B side Sheriff’s second string were not technically a Saturday side and were not competing at Saturday level.
The LFA seemed to agree and ruled they Sheriff should not enter into the Saturday section as they are a Sunday team, with no current Saturday side.
The side that represented Sheriff in the Leinster Senior Cup this season have not been thrown out of the tournament and rather have been placed in the hat for round 3 of the Sunday section.
In that regard they have effectively been given a by past Aston Village and have also potentially by passed a tough game against the winner of Tolka Rovers or Bally Mahon fc if they had beaten the Village.
Sheriff will now compete in the Sunday section until the competition merges and will be hoping for a run into the latter stages of the provincial contest.
