DOWN DEFENDER CONOR GARVEY looks set to miss the Ulster football final after his appeal against a one-match ban was thrown out by the Central Hearings Committee.

Garvey was punished for an alleged stamp on Monaghan’s Karl O’Connell during the provincial semi-final between the counties on 24 June.

Down pulled off a brilliant second-half comeback to set up a meeting with defending champions Donegal on 22 July, only to find that the Central Competitions Control Committee had banned Garvey after retrospectively reviewing video footage from the game.

The suspension was upheld by the CHC who deemed that the infraction “was more likely to have occurred than not to have occurred.”

The Mournemen may now decide to appeal Garvey’s case to the Disputes Resolution Authority in the hope that he will be available to face Donegal.
