Charge over illegal Appiah move

					Charge over illegal Appiah move

Appiah is in demand English side Peterborough United have been hit with an FA charge relating to an alleged illegal approach for Ebbsfleet's Ghanaian striker Kwesi Appiah.


Posh signed Appiah on non-contract terms last month, but Ebbsfleet claim he trained at London Road before a statutory seven-day approach period had elapsed, contrary to Football Association rules.


FA spokesman Matt Phillips said: "Peterborough United have been charged under the rule relating to an illegal approach. They have asked for a personal hearing, but no date has yet been fixed."


Posh director of football Barry Fry insisted his club were 'looking forward to the hearing', but Blue Square Premier Division side Ebbsfleet were delighted that their complaint had lead to a charge.


Ebbsfleet secretary Roly Edwards said: "It's great news. I'm aware it isn't over yet, but I'm pleased that our complaint has been vindicated.


"Our manager Liam Daish has been really restrained in the face of some unnecessary comments. He has acted very professionally."


Posh and Ebbsfleet clashed earlier this year over the possible transfer of non-league striker John Akinde. Akinde ended up at Bristol City.
