Inter Allies have filed a protest against Home Stars FC for using an unqualified player in the final of the Adonai Estate Volta Division Two middle league on Sunday, June 25.
The two teams faced off yesterday at the Ho Stadium for a place in the Division One League. Home Stars emerged victorious, wining 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw game.
Following the game, Inter Allies have in a social media post revealed that they’ve filed a protest against Home Stars for using an unqualified player in the name of Cobby Blay.
The post read: “Inter Allies registers protest against Home Stars player number 23.
“We would like to express our concern regarding the use of an unqualified player, Cobby Blay, by Home Stars during Volta Regional Division Two Middle League Final at the Ho Sports Stadium on Sunday.”
“Cobby Blay is not registered for Home Stars but is a registered player of Evergreen FC with FIFA ID- 1E3L210, born 15/04/2002.”
“That same player is registered with Nkoranza Warriors SC as Cobby Devine Anyormi with FIFA ID-10FC6U2 born 15/04/1995.”
“Also, he is registered with Uncle T. United FC as Justice Divine Kaka, born 15/04/1990 and registered with Accra Athletic FC as Kaka Justice Divine with FIFA ID- 1GD6DB7 born 15/04/1990.”
“We’ve sent the protest to the Volta Regional Football Association and effected the necessary payments..”
“We will continue to uphold the integrity of the game and will work with the appropriate authorities to ensure that this situation is addressed,” the social media post added.
Per Article 33 of the Ghana Football Association Division Two Regulations, a team commits an offence punishable by forfeiture of a match where that team fields an unqualified player.
If the protest succeeds, Inter Allies will be declared winners of the middle league final, in the process securing a place in the Division One League.
