Demoted Dreams FC to contest Appeals Committee ruling

Dreams FC says they will fight the decision of the Ghana Football Association’s Appeals Committee to throw them out of the Ghana top-flight league.

The appeals committee on Wednesday ruled that Tema Youth should be promoted back to the elite division with Dreams FC demoted to Division One.

The committee gave this ruling after finding Dreams FC culpable of using an unqualified player in a Division one League match two seasons ago.

But the club’s administrative manager Ameenu Shardow is unshaken by the latest ruling which threatens their survival.

‘We have been given a raw deal. We were not even given a hearing before the matter was concluded,” he fumed on Accra-based Asempa FM

“We have not even opened our defence and we think it’s not fair. We are going to fight this matter to its logical conclusion.

“The board will meet today (Thursday) to decide on the next line of action.”

The body also slapped a five-year ban from all football activities on Dreams FC official Ibrahim Dossey Adam for signing the release letter of the player on behalf of the club.

Dreams FC were also slapped with a fine of Two Thousand and Five Hundred cedis over the matter that has taken more than one year.
