Twelve match bans have been imposed on two Kilmacrennan officials for their part in the ugly brawl involving players and officials from the two teams close to the end of the game.

The officials have not been named by the Donegal Junior League Disciplinary Committee who imposed the sentences.

Kilmacrennan have also been fined €250 and a fine of €75 has been imposed on Castlefinn.

Kilmacrennan players Daire McDaid, Kieran Gorman and Mark Friel along with Castlefinn’s Gary McNulty were shown red cards in the course of the game.
