Tyrone officials have handed out a number of sanctions

Disciplinary chiefs in Tyrone have come down heavily on the clubs involved in a brawl which marred the Division One League final.

Four people from each club involved in fighting in the stand at Dunmoyle have been banned for a year, while lengthy suspensions were also handed down to three Carrickmore players.

The clubs have also been fined £300 each, and will have to play their next two fixtures against each other at neutral venues.

Both clubs have also been banned from taking part in the league play-offs next season.

A mass brawl broke out on the field in the closing minutes of the game between Dromore and Carrickmore and violence then erupted in the stands.

Video evidence was viewed by the Tyrone disciplinary body before the punishments were handed out.

The Tyrone Competitions Control Committee (CCC) held a number of meetings to discuss the incidents which totally overshadowed Dromore's 0-11 to 0-6 win over Carrickmore.

Last week, Tyrone officials called on those involved in the violence to own up to their roles in the disturbances.

Dromore's victory saw them completing a championship and league double in Tyrone football.
