CROSSMAGLEN joint-manager Oisin McConville has refuted allegations that Cargin's Michael McCann was bitten in yesterday's Ulster Club SFC quarter-final.

Cargin manager John Brennan claimed after the game that McCann had been bitten during a 36th minute melee involving a dozen players. The midfielder later confirmed what Brennan had said, but wouldn’t name his alleged assailant.

Talking to RTÉ Radio’s Morning Ireland, McConville said he is "happy" that none of his players had bitten McCann during Crossmaglen's first win in the Ulster Championship in three years. 

 “All we can really do is ask. These sort of incidents are very hard to prove and are very hard to see. We’re happy that such an incident did not happen.

“We wouldn’t condone anything like that. It’s not the way we play football. We haven’t been associated with this stuff before.

“It wouldn’t be something as a management team we’d be condoning and as a club it’s not something we would want happening.”
