Osei Kweku Palmer, the president of Tema Youth Football Club is elated the Appeals Committee has demoted Dreams FC to division for using an unqualified player.

Dreams FC were demoted to division one by the Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for using Daniel Gozar/Cudjoe Mensah who was unqualified to have played their match day 24 game against Tema Youth two seasons ago in the GN Division One League.

Although Tema Youth’s protest was thrown out by the judicial bodies of the GFA, they proceeded to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).


CAS referred the matter back to the FA instructing them to constitute the Appeals Committee to sit on the matter and after hearing the parties involved, they have demoted Dreams FC to Division One, while Tema Youth have been promoted to the topflight league.

Osei Kweku who was optimistic of victory from the start has expressed his joy.
