PWD Social Football Club of Bamenda, has filed a protest to the homologation and disciplinary commission of the Cameroon football Federation, against Union de Mouvement sportif of Loum.
The Abakwa Boys suffered a 3#4 defeat to UMS on Sunday at the Fotso Victor Stadium in Bandjoun in one of Day 19 games in pool B of the MTN Elite one championship.
Shortly before the kickoff of the game, PWD through their captain John Paul Nzo Ngong, indicated a qualification protest against one of UMS’ players, Eric Joel Ntieche, who failed to present a valid license which was the only document needed for him to feature in that game.
The former YOSA left back took part in the encounter, and played an instrumental role in his sides victory. PWD’s protest was noted by the match officials, and transmitted to the appropriate quarters for examination.
According to sources within the Abakwa Boys, all necessary follow-up measures were taken to make sure their complain registered at the headquarters of the homologation and disciplinary commission, with the team already paying the sum of 200,000FCFA caution fee as required by the text.
What the law says
The text is very much clear on the presentation of licenses by players and officials on match day.
According to Article 109 of the General Regulations of the Cameroon Football Federation on presentation of licenses;
1) The referees require the presentation of licenses before each match and check
the identity of the players. If a player does not present his license, the referee must prohibit him from appearing on the match sheet and from taking part in the match.
2) In the event that the opposing team would deposit preliminary reservations on the participation of the player referred to in paragraph 1 above in the match, and where the referee however, would allow him to take part in the match, the team of this player would lost the by penalty if the said reserves are regularly transformed into complaint.
The Abakwa Boys will now be hoping to get a favourable response from the homologation and disciplinary commission of FECAFOOT, as they’re still eyeing to take three points from UMS
