The GFF domestic league is now entering into its decisive stage with both leagues at the end of Match Day 16 and 18 respectively in the male category. In Week 19 matches, the GFF Organizing Committee had taken actions on various areas as filed in by Match Officials ranging from protests, suspensions, and fines.
The GFF during its regular sittings over the week and in the month of March decisively took actions on some of the agenda items brought before them amongst which was a protest received from SK East Bi FC against Brufut United FC, for allegedly using a Real De Banjul player, Mr. Edrissa JATTA On March 8, 2017. So too was Brufut United FC protesting against Wallidan, for fielding an unqualified player Ebrima CEESAY, alias EBBA.
The OC is fast-tracking the action points on these queries and promises to come out with answers soon. The GFF OC had received a Re-appeal by Gamtel FC, regarding player Mr. Salifu CEESAY and claiming ownership. The OC, however, has reemphasized that matters concluded by the Appeals Committee are always final and non-negotiable
