Derry club Glen are to seek clarification from the GAA over a potential rules breach where Kilmacud Crokes appeared to have an extra player on the pitch for a period of injury time in the AIB All-Ireland club final.Glen have until 3.30pm on Wednesday to lodge an objection.RTÉ Sport made contact with Glen, with club chairperson Barry Slowey saying that they have been made aware that potentially a rule (Rule 6.44) has been broken and will therefore seek clarification.The penalties for breaching Rule 6.44 include the awarding of the game to the opposing team, for the game to be replayed, or a fine.A review of potential infractions of this rule can be instigated by appeal or an "inquiry by the committee in charge", so the Central Competition Controls Committee (CCCC) could also choose to investigate without a request from Glen.Crokes ran out 1-11 to 1-09 winners at Croke Park but not without controversy as the Dublin side made two late substitutions, bringing on Tom Fox and Conor Casey for Paul Mannion and Dara Mullin, with Mullin appearing to stay on the pitch for the final play.The changes were made as Glen prepared to take a last-gasp 45' but Mullin was present on the field for that passage of play.Speaking after Sunday's final at GAA HQ, Glen manager Malachy O’Rourke revealed that he was aware of the incident at the time and had spoken to a match official, requesting that the '45’ be retaken with the proper number of players on the pitch."Yeah, obviously we can do nothing about that but it obviously does make a difference," he said after the game."The more men they have in there, the harder it is for us to get a score out of it.
