Seven Mountbellew-Moylough players face disciplinary action over the incidents which marred their Connacht SFC semi-final loss to Roscommon champions Pádraig Pearses last month.

Match referee Jerome Henry from Castlebar Mitchels club has named seven players from the Galway champions in his official report and the disciplinary process is now being carried out by the Connacht Council.

The Irish Examiner reports that two of the players face allegations of assaulting the referee and a further five have been named for abusing the match official.

A spokesperson for the Connacht Council said the matter is being dealt with at the moment.

It is understood the seven players named in the referee’s report will be given an opportunity to respond as part of the process.

One player faces allegations of assaulting the referee and a linesman. Another player is accused of assaulting the referee and ‘using abusive conduct’.

Five other players are reported for ‘using abusive conduct’. All the players involved could face lengthy bans.

The incidents happened following a controversial end to the Connacht semi-final clash against Padraig Pearses played at Dr Hyde Park in Roscommon on the 11th of December.

The Mayo official said he was pushed in the back on two different occasions and that one of his linesmen had been shoulder-charged.
