Armagh's latest appeals against the one-match bans handed to Andy Mallon, Brendan Donaghy and Kieran Toner have been turned down by the GAA's Central Appeals Committee.

The trio will now miss Saturday evening’s Ulster SFC semi-final clash against Monaghan in Clones (throw-in 5pm).

The suspensions were imposed following the pre-match mass brawl at the Ulster SFC game against Cavan on 8 June at Armagh's Athletic Grounds.

The CAC met last night to consider written submissions from the players, who chose not to attend the hearing at Croke Park.

Mallon, Donaghy and Toner had initial appeals heard by the Central Hearings Committee last Friday but the suspensions were all upheld.

The players still have the option of making further pleas to the Disputes Resolution Authority.
