Brufut Youth and Sports Development Committee (BYSDC) has expressed disappointment with West Coast Regional Football Association (WCRFA) after presenting D25,000 to Brufut United as the 2014-2015 West Coast Regional third division league champions.

BYSDC expressed its profound disappointment regarding the manner in which West Coast Regional football Association managed the just concluded regional third division league, saying that after the clubs numbering twelve paid a colossal amount of D10,000 each and series of preparatory meetings held all geared towards putting in place all the necessary mechanism to ensure standard procedures are implemented without bias, the league got seriously organized by very poor coordination and management style that ran contrary to best practices.

BYSDC added that all participating teams were made to believe that the league champions would receive D100,000 instead of the D25,000 money given on a postdated cheque to the champions.

BYSDC further added that the teams were also informed that it would be the organizing committee that would be responsible for the league and all the fields in the region were handed over to the organizing committee and the secretariat would be communicating to all teams to ensure that everybody is informed about the progress of the league. These were the agreements between West Coastal Region Football Association and the clubs.

BYSDC stated that it was well-known by everybody remotely connected to the league that it was either Brufut United or Jambanjelly United that would emerge champions of the league at the last match played at the Brufut football field and it was disappointing for the organizers coming to the match without the trophy and cash prize.

BYSDC further stated that the assaults on their intelligence did not stop at refusing their community the pleasure of celebrating their trophy. They therefore urged West Coast Regional Football Association to call for a congress to furnish stakeholders with their activity reports and set up an appeal and disciplinary committee.
