According to Jersey Irish player Dermot Harrison, who scored a goal plus two points during the match, up to eight of the opposition had been brought over from Ireland specifically for this one-off game.’We knew there was something wrong when one of their team came into our dressing room before the game and started togging out,’ he said.
”It was obvious he didn’t know any of his team-mates when we sent him next door.
Then, before the game, some of our lads recognised two or three of their players who had played for Meath, at county level.’We had five days after the final to put in a complaint to the London county board and that’s what we’ve done.
It was a team decision and we’re now just waiting to see what will happen.
