The NI Football League can confirm that the NIFL Competitions Committee have ruled on a breach of Championship Rules.

The eligibility of Knockbreda player Ciaran Heggarty was raised via protest from Newington in relation to his appearance in the Lough 41 Championship match against Newington on 3 January 2023.

The case was considered by the Sub-Committee and has ruled that the player in question was not registered in accordance with the IFA Professional Game Player Registration regulations and the NIFL Player Registration Regulations at the time of the match under Protest.

As a result of this breach, Knockbreda have been fined £250 and the match awarded to Newington with a 3-0 scoreline.
