January 23, 1919
A meeting of the Senior Protests and Appeals Committee of the Irish Football Association was held in Dublin on Thursday night, when Messrs. Small, Macbride, Bill and Watson, of Belfast, attended. The committee considered the protest by Bangor against Ulster F.C. (Dublin) for having played two men without permission in the Intermediate Cup-tie last Saturday. It is alleged that Ulster played Fred Pagnam, of Liverpool, and Jones, of Notts County, against Bangor without permission of these clubs.

The committee decided to suspend Ulster from the Intermediate Cup for the season, to suspend the two players for two weeks, and to suspend the secretary of Ulster Club till May 20. The Liverpool Club have a transfer fee of £3,000 on Pagnam, and Notts County one of £1,300 on Jones.
