Glen withdraw from All-Ireland final replay

Glen have withdrawn their appeal process against the result of the All-Ireland Senior Club final, therefore Kilmacud Crokes will remain All-Ireland champions.

In a statement released this evening, Glen said, "Watty Graham's GAC, Glen lodged an objection to the result of the All-Ireland club final because we believed that grounds existed for a replay to be held if Rule 6.44 had been broken.

"Due to the ongoing proceedings, we as a club now do not believe the conditions exist for a replay to be contested.

"Consequently, Watty Graham's, Glen would like to withdraw from this process.

"As a club, the sense of pride and respect we have for our team and management will endure. They have treated us to countless moments of joy, which until recently, we didn't even know were possible.

"Watty Graham's GAC would like to thank our members for all the support they have given to our players, management and committee.

"The club would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the messages of help and support we have received from throughout the country.

"We will go again."

Glen initially lodged an appeal after it became apparent that the Dublin champions had 17 players, 16 active, on the field during the last play of the All-Ireland final.

The sage continued when Crokes lodged a conter-appeal and the CCCC ordered a replay, however that will now not be the case.
