Jason Forde Learns His Fate Following Appeal Decision

Tipperary’s Jason Forde has lost his appeal against a one-match ban. 

The 23-year-old was originally handed a two-match ban but this was reduced on appeal. This subsequent appeal has, however, been unfruitful for the Silvermines club man, who will now miss Tipp’s Munster Championship opener again Cork this Sunday.

Forde’s original two-match ban came about following an on-field altercation with Clare manager Davy Fitzgerald earlier in the year. For his part in instigating the incident, Fitzgerald was handed an eight-week touchline ban.

The former goalkeeper offered to help out in Tipp’s appeal against any ban for Forde but this was, of course, ultimately all in vain as the All-Ireland winner will now sit out the first round of Munster Championship action.

The Premier take on Cork this Sunday at Semple Stadium with throw-in at 4 pm.
