Listen to article

Accra, Nov 5, GNA - The Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has invited the club chairmen of Okwawu United and Real Tamale United to appear before it on Monday, November 8. The committee is to sit on the appeal filed by Okwawu United on the disciplinary action imposed on the club towards their role in the abrupt end of their league match played at the Mpraeso Brightons Park on October 13.

The Disciplinary Committee early this week imposed a two match home ban on the "Soccer Mountaineers" plus a fine of seven million cedis after their last league match witnessed massive hooliganism from the home crowd.

The referee, Alhasan Brobbey was said to have reportedly called off the match citing insecurity after unidentified supporters who invaded the pitch with less than 20 minutes left for play attacked him and his assistants.

Okwawu were also declared losers of the match and had three additional points deducted from their total point build up.

The decision however did not change Okwawu's already precarious plight on the league table that finds them firmly rooted second from the bottom with five points from ten games.

The Professional League Board (PLB) is expected to determine the venue for the club's next home game against Ashantigold this Sunday. 05 Nov. 04
