Tummery Athletic have lodged a protest following last Wednesday's fonaCAB Irish Junior Cup semi-final defeat after it emerged Enniskillen Rangers had a suspended player in attendance at Ferney Park.

Jordan McClure was reportedly in Enniskillen Rangers' match preparations despite being suspended for the game following his dismissal the week before.

Rangers defeated Tummery 3-1 on the night with three goals in the opening half an hour in Ballinamallard.

Nathan Khan’s long-range effort began the scoring spree and was quickly followed by a clever finish from Mark Cutler after Jake Browne slid the ball back across goal.

Joel Byrne’s cross to the back post travelled all the way over goalkeeper Niall McCrory and into the net for 3-0 to give Micky Kerr’s side a dream opening half.

Tummery did hit back with a goal from Padraig Dillon, but Rangers held on to see out the win.

However, Rangers could be denied a fourth Junior Cup final win if Tummery’s protest is acted upon by the IFA.

Tummery player Kevin McAleer was also suspended for the semi-final and spent it watching the game in the stands.

Enniskillen Rangers did not comment when contacted regarding the matter. The IFA have also been contacted for a statement.
