Committee not happy with BFA over points award to Eagles

FRANCISTOWN: Some members of the Francistown Division One league committee are reportedly not happy with the Botswana Football Association (BFA) Disciplinary Committee (DC)'s decision to award Sladden Eagles FC their points back.

Eagles had 12 points deducted from them for failure to pay a P2, 000 fine for violence in their two first round matches in Mathangwane against Peace Lovers and Tonota-based outfit, Blue Birds. The club did not pay the fine within the stipulated 14 days.

They were however awarded back their points last week after they appealed their case to the BFA DC. In their appeal to the DC, Eagles argued that the league committee did not have the powers to deliberate on their matter as it involved violence.
