National Middle League matches postponed

08.03.2006 LISTEN

Accra, Mar 8, GNA - The last matches of the on-going National Middle League have been postponed following the inability of the Disciplinary Committee to clear protest cases lodged by some Division One Clubs.

The matches were fixed for Sunday, March 11 but a statement issued by Mr Douglas Djarbeng, Chairman of the Division One League Board copied to the GNA Sports said the last matches will remain on hold until the final determination of the cases.

The four cases to be considered relate to the use of unqualified players brought before the Committee by Aduana Stars verses B.A United, All Blacks verses Great Olympics, All Blacks verses B.A United and Aduana Stars verses Great Olympics.

The statement said the decision to postpone the matches is to create an even- playing field for all the Clubs in the competition and to eliminate the semblance of a contrived League at the end of the National Middle League.

It added that the league will resume as soon as the Disciplinary Committee determines the four cases with the urgency they deserve.

Mr Djarbeng however expressed regret of the inconvenience caused to the participating clubs by the decision.

It expressed the hope that the participating Clubs will show much understanding and forbearance on the position of the Board.
