County Antrim Shield: Knockbreda appeal expulsion from competition

Knockbreda have submitted an appeal to the Irish FA over their expulsion from the County Antrim Shield for using an ineligible player.

The Championship club were denied a semi-final against Larne after their quarter-final win over Ballymacash Rangers was overturned.

Ballymacash were reinstated and were scheduled to face Larne on 14 November.

However, the semi-final has been postponed "until such time that the appeals process has concluded".

The other semi-final between Carrick Rangers and Glentoran will go ahead as scheduled on 28 November.

Knockbreda beat Ballymacash after a penalty shootout in the quarter-finals but Rangers appealed the result, stating that their opponents used an ineligible player.

Knockbreda named goalkeeper Marc Matthews in their starting team but then replaced him with Benjamin Fry.

When Matthews was sent off, Fry came on which was deemed a rule breach.
