Trans­fer ap­pli­ca­tions

Bray People - - SPORT -

A NUM­BER of trans­fer ap­pli­ca­tions were granted at last week's County Board meet­ing; oth­ers were re­fused and sent back to the CCC for fur­ther con­sid­er­a­tion.

One par­tic­u­lar ap­pli­ca­tion was for a player wish­ing to trans­fer from Lacken to Bless­ing­ton.

Bless­ing­ton chair­man Michael Sergeant spoke pas­sion­ately in sup­port of the trans­fer, but County Chair­man Mick Ha­gan said that the mat­ter was not for de­bate as the CCC had made its de­ci­sion and it was fi­nal.

The ap­pli­ca­tion was re­fused.

There was some light­hearted re­lief when an ap­pli­ca­tion on be­half of An­dre Slepko, seek­ing a trans­fer from Donard to Bless­ing­ton, came be­fore the meet­ing.

Asked if he knew the ap­pli­cant, Donard's Peter Case replied: 'I don't know the chap, it is not a Donard name.'

It emerged at the meet­ing that a num­ber of clubs had not paid af­fil­i­a­tions. If they were not paid by Thurs­day night (last week) then the divi­sion one league games would not be go­ing ahead that week­end as play­ers would not be cov­ered by in­surance.
