Full Statement from Wexford FC
On Friday night last we were delighted to come away with a win in Lissywollen vs Athlone Town FC. After the match, it became clear that our player Thomas Croke, who came on as a second half replacement, should not have taken any part in the game as he was on the player suspension list last week.
We as a club had been properly advised of this but due to human error, this message was not picked up by team management, and the mistake was made. As a result, the club has lost the points and will receive a fine.
To say that we are deeply disappointed is an understatement.
In a season when wins have been few and far between, it is a crushing blow to lose this one off the field of play.
However, the issue was due to an internal communications break down and we wish to apologise unreservedly to players, supporters, and all who love Wexford FC. We are taking steps to ensure no such communications break down can happen in the future.
