Waterford GAA have confirmed they’ve stripped Dungarvan of the county’s Intermediate Football Championship title.

It’s after the club fielded a player awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test in their victory over Kill. 

The player later tested positive, and Dungarvan apologised for their transgression.

Waterford GAA statement: 

Further to the investigation into matters arising from the Intermediate Football Final and the positive Covid-19 case, the Management Executive of Waterford County Board wishes to advise that the individual suspensions and the penalties of disqualification and fine for Dungarvan GAA Club, have been accepted.

The Management Executive would like to thank the officers and members of Dungarvan GAA for their full cooperation with the investigation.

Waterford GAA will be making no further comment on the matter.
