Capital Sports call for GFA's intervention

Listen to article

Accra, Aug 17, GNA - Capital Sports, an Accra based third division club has appealed to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to intervene in their case against Vasajan FC of Teshie, currently before the Appeals Committee of the Greater Accra Regional Football Association. A statement from the Club said they have been forced to come to this point since the Appeals Committee has not been forthcoming with its decision on the matter hence stalling the release of the final league standings after the league.

It continued that in view of the prevailing circumstances, Capital Sport have lost confidence in the RFA in dispensing of the proper justice in the case hence the call for the GFA to step in. The statement said Capital Sports lodged a protest against Vasajan for fielding an unqualified player and using player cards signed by unauthorised member of the RFA for their promotional play-off match at the Kaneshie Sports Complex on June 26, 2004.

It continued that the decision to use the cards that were endorsed by the unauthorised member of the RFA is in direct contravention with the laid down rules.

The statement said at the sittings of the Appeals Committee, "We requested the invitation of Mr Aaron Sowah of Ronnie FC to give evidence since Eric Mensah who featured in the said match for Vasajan was on loan from his club and was thus not eligible to play."

"To our surprise the Disciplinary Committee refused to allow Mr Sowah to testify and that suggests the likelihood of an unfair result being reached, hence the appeal to the GFA to intervene to avoid the case being "maligned".
