LIMERICK FC have officially finished in last place of the SSE Airtricity Division One following a 26 point deduction issued by the Independent Club Licensing Committee.
In a statement released on Wednesday evening the FAI revealed that: “Following the appointment of an Examiner by the High Court in September 2019, Limerick FC has been sanctioned by the independent Club Licensing Committee and deducted 26 points.
“The club will be deemed to have finished 10th in the 2019 SSE Airtricity League First Division table.”
With the 2019 season of the First Division concluded, Tommy Barrett’s side were previously in sixth place after a disappointing campaign following their relegation from the Premier Division in 2019.
Taking in the 26 point deduction into account, Limerick FC now sit in tenth place one point behind Wexford Youths, the Super Blues’ lowest finish in fifteen years, after finishing tenth back in the 2004 season.
When asked if this meant relegation or expulsion from the League of Ireland the FAI spokesperson said: “There will be no further comment on the matter.”
Limerick Voice has contacted Limerick FC for comment.
