GVBF bans Pa Sanu Secka for life

Wednesday, November 02, 2016

The executive committee of Gambia Volleyball Federation has expelled Pa Sanu Secka of Gamtel/cel volleyball club for life following a gross misconduct by the player on 22 August 2016 in a game against Serrekunda east in Banjul.

The former Gambian international, physically assaulted assistant referee Ebrima Ndow, disrupted the game and destroyed the Federation’s scoreboard.

This bad behaviour and absolute indiscipline is totally against the rules and regulations of the Federation, as mentioned in article 14 of the rules which says: “Any team or individual that is caught using abusive language or physically assaulting referee / match official / match commissioner / organizing committee or the executive committee of the Gambia Volleyball Federation will be dealt with by the organizing committee and the decision will be final and any player or officer who is suspended will not participate in all the activities of the Gambia Volleyball Federation, during his or her suspension period and will be excluded from National duty.

Therefore the national league organizing committee and the executive committee have come to a final conclusion to ban Mr Pa Sanu Secka of Gamtel/cel volleyball club from all activities of the Gambia Volleyball Federation both national and international for life and any volleyball activity organized or that involves the National Federation, Sanu Secka will not play. He is not allowed at venues where the volleyball federation is holding their activities.

In this respect the GVBF has copied the National Sports Council, the Inspector General of Police and the Managing Director of Gamtel/Gamcel.

This action is contrary to the rules and regulation of the GVBF. It is unbearable, unprofessional and unacceptable.

The Gambia Volleyball Federation will impose tough sanctions to individuals and clubs that go contrary to its rules and regulations and against the best interest of the game.

All players, officials and clubs are therefore encouraged to abide by the rules and regulations to ensure standards in our beautiful game.
