As a result, final games in the 2014-2015 West Coast Regional third Division league have been called off by the organizing committee till further notice.
This development came in the wake of a petition signed by eight clubs complaining about unfair treatment and “biased judgments” made by the organizing committee.
The united clubs’ representatives (REPS) outlined over 14 violations and total disregard of the constitution and its rules and regulations in their petition.
The united clubs’ representatives (REPS) made three demands to the West Coast Regional Football Association executives which must be solved before the teams play there last games.
Number one: Jambanjelly/Brikama game was invaded by two fans with knives and the game was eventually abandoned, and the points were shared between the two teams.
The united clubs’ representatives (REPS) are demanding that all the points should be given to Brikama.
Number two: Jambanjelly/Busumbala match did not take place as a result of colour clash.
The referee ordered Jambanjelly to change as an away team and Jambanjelly rushed back home to collect another colour but unfortunately for them the referee said the match could not be played to finish, then he called off the game.
“Again, out of total disregard of our rules and regulations the three points were given to Jambanjelly instead of Busumbala,” the petition states.
The united clubs’ representatives (REPS) are also demanding that the three points should be given to Busumbala.
Number three: The Jambanjelly/ Gunjur games were marred with violence and unsporting misbehaviours.
The two communities are becoming serious enemies caused by the bias, incompetence and negligence of the organizing committee.
The united clubs’ representatives (REPS) are demanding that the matter be looked into and the two sides brought to terms as they were before.
These three demands are to be responded to as quickly as possible or other options may follow, the petition stated.
