Carnbane clubs may benefit after Newry IFA membership terminated
Newry City’s Irish FA membership has been terminated after the club’s registered directors told the governing body that they did not intend to appeal against a High Court winding-up order.
The IFA suspended the club following last week’s winding-up order. On Friday, the IFA announced that all results from Newry City team’s this season “will be expunged”.
Newry players will be unable to register for clubs who play in professional leagues until the 1st January 2013. This means they cannot sign for other Irish League or League of Ireland clubs until January.
The club’s players will also be unable to play in the Irish Cup or the Intermediate Cup, which are both subject to professional regulations, until January.
Newry City players will now be able to immediately register as players for clubs that participate in amateur leagues.
The Carnbane League committee confirmed the news with the following statement:
“As the Carnbane League is a totally amateur League, players from Newry City FC will be eligible to now sign for any club of their choice in the Carnbane League.
“A fresh registration form will be required for each player. Players will be eligible to play in the League from week commencing 1 October 2012.”
