New Edubiase United have been declared losers of their match day 25 league victory over the debutants for using an unqualified player.
The woes of the bottom club New Edubiase United has been deepened after the Disciplinary Committee upheld Techiman City’s protest against them over the use of an ineligible player.
The New Edubiase based club defied all expectations to beat Techiman City 2-1 at the Nana Ameyaw Park on match day 25.
However, the Disciplinary Committee has upheld Techiman City’s protest against the 2O12 FA Cup champions for using an unqualified player and have therefore gained all the three points involved in the game.
"That having been found to have forfeited the match, New Edubiase United FC shall be considered as having lost the match in accordance with Article 34(2) and accordingly, three (3) points and three (3) goals are hereby awarded in favour of Techiman City FC in accordance with Articles 34(2) and 34(10) of the General Regulations of the GFA.
