The vice president of Ashgold FC, Nana Achiken is appealing to the Ghana Football Association to reduce the ban placed on the Obuasi club.
Ashgold have been demoted to Division 2 following a match-fixing scandal with Inter Allies.
The club has written to the FA for a review “we are yet to hear from the FA over our written review, though there are no compulsions on them to sit on it per their laws.”
“Should our plan A which is to overturn the entire ruling on the part of the club fail, since the club did not benefit directly from the actions of Dr Frimpong, we will petition the executive council of the FA and Congress to temper mercy with justice to reduce the ban imposed [on us],” Achiken told Akoma Sports.
He also said, “at least a demotion to the division one league would be better than the current ruling taking us to the Ashanti Regional Division 2 league.”
“Most of our players are professionals, and might seek for floating if we are to play in the second division, but in the first division laws abide them to play, so in order not to lose most of our top players, we are going to appeal to the executive council and the entire congress to reduce our ban if indeed we are deemed culpable of the offence as a club.”
