PALAPYE: The Botswana Football Association (BFA) vice president, finance and marketing, Marshlow Motlogelwa has urged First Division North teams to learn from the recent Sankoyo Bush Bucks case involving the use of a defaulter.

Ngurungu were found guilty of using an improperly registered Morris Ruzivo, who was the team’s top goal scorer.  Addressing the First Division North annual general meeting, Motlogelwa urged teams to read the rules and regulations to avoid falling foul to the law. 

“We all need to read the constitution as our guideline.  Let us study it to help us when taking decisions. Club chairpersons and everybody ought to read play rules and regulations. Let us not assume that our opponents or the Premier League won’t see. I urge you not to negatively criticise, but to learn something from issues like that one of Sankoyo so that your teams won’t repeat the same mistake,” he said. Motlogelwa further advised First Division teams to protect the image of their sponsor, Debswana. He said if the media always portrays First Division league negatively, they will be at risk of losing their sponsor and also find it difficult to secure a new one.
