The Schools and Colleges Sports Federation of the Ghana Education Service has been served an injunction notice by some past students of Asanteman SHS. The injunction was served on the Regional Education Directorate laster in the day on Friday 15th July.
The injunction seeks to put on hold any soccer related activity of the federation until a ‘fair hearing’ is given to the appeal case lodged by Asanteman SHS.
The injunction was secured at the law court by some old students of Asanteman Senior High School who claim that the school was unfairly treated during the hearing of the Disciplinary Committee which awarded three points and three goals to Obuasi SHTS. Obuasi SHTS went on to lose 1:0 to T. I. Amass in the semi finals of this year’s competition.
The Schools and Colleges Sports Federation of the Ashanti Region has not received any court injunction from Asanteman SHS as being speculated by a section of some outfits.
The Federation however acknowledged the receipt of an Appeal lodged by Asanteman SHS against the decision by the Disciplinary Committee to declare Obuasi SHTS winners of their quarter final game played at Len Clay Stadium.
Asanteman SHS is calling on the Appeals Committee to take a second look at the earlier decision by the Disc
plinary Committee. It is unclear what the decision of the Appeals Committee will be since Obuasi SHTS went on further to play T. I. Amass, Ksi in the semi final and eventually lost by 1:0 to Amass. Asanteman is seeking to annul the results of the Disciplinary Committee and to be given the opportunity to play Amass for the semi finals. Even though there’s no precedence like that, Asanteman is confident that they can overturn the decision and get a replay of the semi finals with T. I. Amass.
Meanwhile, the earlier decision to play the finals at Ejisu Okesse Park on Monday has been suspended to pave way for clarity on the appeal by Asanteman SHS.
After that decision is made, the federation will come clear on when and where to play the 3rd place and final game. In effect, there’s no record of injunction by Asanteman SHS before the Sports Federation but an official appeal which will be attended to early next week to pave way for the next line of action.
Obuasi Senior High Technical School has won their protest against Asanteman SHS over the use of an unqualified player.
The player featured for Asanteman in their win over O’secTec. However O’secTec filed a protest against the said player by name Evans Osei had completed basic schools at State Boys M/A JHS. O’secTec alleged that the said player had schooled at Presby SHS, Kwamang. After a thorough scrutiny and cross examination, the Disciplinary Committee under the Chairmanship of Mr. Michael Mensah (Headmaster, OKESS) with the support of Headmasters of Ghana Muslim Mission shs and Islamic SHS.
The Committee thoroughly interrogated the matter and came to a consensus that the said player duly went to Kwamang Presby and was unqualified to feature for the school.
The Committee therefore awarded the points to O’secTec and declared them winners in that game. Obuasi SHTS was fined Gh500. 00 for a typo error.
Asanteman SHS was fined Gh.1000.00 for losing the case.
