Ballybrack FC Sanctioned For Pretending Player Had Died

Ballybrack FC has been sanctioned for pretending one of its players had died.

The Dublin club won't be kicked out of the league, though.

Ballybrack FC had claimed Fernando La Fuente died in a car crash.

However, it later emerged he was very much alive - and someone at the club had made the whole thing up to try and get a match postponed.

Fernando, who's working as an app developer in Galway, confirmed he was 'alive and kicking' and said there was no bad blood with the club over the incident.

But the Leinster Senior League has decided Ballybrack and the individual involved brought the game into disrepute and has sanctioned them.

Following a meeting of the league and club officials yesterday, it's been decided Ballybrack won't be kicked out of the division altogether.
