DRA Statement on Mattie Forde

At a hearing in Dunboyne last night a DRA Tribunal directed that the CDC clarify with the match referee whether or not he saw the alleged "stamping" incident involving Mattie Forde in the Leinster SFC match between Wexford and Offaly on 2nd July 2006.

Following the Tribunal's decision, Mattie Forde indicated that he did not wish to proceed further with the matter and opted to accept the penalty which had been imposed by the CDC.
