Appeals ruling sets aside decision against AshantiGold

The Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association has set aside a disciplinary decision that declared AshantiGold losers in a league match.

A Disciplinary Committee ruling in May, 2011 credited Mighty Jets 3 points and 3 goals following a protest against AshantiGold in their match-day-25 fixture on April 24, 2011 at the Akosombo Park.

The ruling by the DC also deducted AshantiGold 3 points and 3 goals over the use of strips.

However, an appeal by AshantiGold, has been upheld with the Committee explaining that their failure to present their away strip at the pre-match technical meeting constituted an offence punishable under Article 34 (1) (k) of the Regulations.

"The appeal succeeds and the decision of the Disciplinary Committee is hereby set aside," the ruling by the Appeals Committee read.

"The results of the said match should stand."
