Leinster Senior League will meet on Thursday night to determine what penalty will be handed over to Ballybrack after the club has reported incorrectly the death of one of its players to get a break in Arklow turned off during the weekend.
Fernando Nuno La Fuent's precise creature is still something of a mystery, but the good news is that he is considered living and good somewhere in his native Spain. It seems like he returned there about a month after the time he spent here in Ireland, where he lined out for Ballybrack.
With the Spaniards gone and apparently in need of a launch, someone decided that it was to say to the league he was dead, a victim of a road accident on his way home from training last Thursday night.
"We get calls from clubs saying that someone connected to the club has died and they need a game called all the time and there is never a problem with it," said Le Morster Senior League chairman David Moran The Irish Times. "But it started raging here when we followed up on Monday to see if we could come into contact with the boy's family and see if there was anything we could do. They said the body was already back in Spain, which did not really.
"It's a shocking thing to do to get a soccer game," he continued.
"We had a minute's silence at all other games and the players had black bracelets. You must have something wrong with doing something like that."
After the news broke, Ballybrack's club secretary resigned with text, according to Moran, but it's about as much direct contact as it has been since. "We will meet on Thursday," said Moran, "one of the first things we have to do is to find out what rules they broke. We've never had anything like this before."
Ballybrack's club secretary could not be contacted for comment last night.
