GN Bank Division One League results

  • Barring any unexpected last minute hitches, the highly competitive GN Bank Division One League will kick off this weekend with forty-eight teams divided into three Zones (1,2, and 3), competing for the right to represent their respective zones in the premier division next season.

  • Zone 3 favorites, Accra Gt. Olympics, saw their campaign get off to a slow start out of the gates. Perhaps, a result of all that energy spent on trying to secure a stay in the premiership through the courts,

    Week One of the GN Bank Division One League got underway this weekend with a mixed bag of results, especially for some of the favorite teams, as they failed to secure the expected victories at home, while some of the newly promoted teams surprised with wins at home and ties on the road.

  • Week 24 of the GN Bank Division One League will come off this Wednesday and Thursday, with the last game of the match day scheduled for Wednesday, August 09th. All the attention will once again be focused on Zone one where the top spot remains wide open for the taking with Eleven Wonders and W. NEA Salamina tied for the first spot on 42points apiece with B.A. United and Real Tamale United in hot pursuit. In Zones two and three, the race is all but over given Karela and Dreams FC’s healthy lead and domination of the competition.

  • With just one game - Asokwa Deportivo vs Fijai Real Utd - to go, Week 24 of the GN Bank Division League produced some unexpected results. On the top end of the scale, Eleven Wonders stayed the course, whilst Karela FC and Dreams FC saw their smooth roll towards the Premier Division momentarily slowed on the road. On the bottom end, several of the relegation threatened teams did not do much to boost their survival chances.

    Accra Gt. Olympics’ quest for a quick turnaround to the Premier League seems to be on full course following the recent GFA Disciplinary Committee ruling that awarded them the full spoils from their match day 27 encounter against Amidaus Professionals following the latter’s use of unqualified players for the match that enabled the Dade Boys to open a 4point lead atop the Zone 3 log with 2 games to the end of the season, thus putting them in control of their destiny and making their path to the PL division largely theirs to lose as games in the division come on this weekend with Amidaus, King Solomon and Roberto FC relegated to Division Two.

    Gt. Olympics will have the chance to clinch the top spot in the zone as well as seal their qualification for next season’s Premier League on the road this weekend as guests of Mighty Jets who are one spot off mid-table and can likely play spoilers to postpone Olympics’ coronation. Olympics won the first encounter by two goals to nothing and look capable of wrapping up the zone this weekend if they give it their all at the expense of Mighty Jets who saw their 3 game unbeaten run crash at the Lions this past weekend. Heart of Lions will definitely be disappointed at the recent turn of events after their hurried and remarkable 5 game unbeaten run - 4 wins and a tie - that saw them make a strong push for the top spot, but they will have no choice but to keep the pressure on with a road win over mid-tablers Istanbul FC should the unexpected happen to derail Olympics’ chances. And same goes for the precocious third placed Okyeman Planners who will play as guests of relegated King Solomon FC.

    Vision FC’s quest for a top four finish does not seem to be under any threat as they play as guests of sixth placed Danbort FC who just ended a miserable 5 game winless run at the expense of demoted Roberto FC, and 5th placed Okwawu Utd who haven’t won a Division One game on the field since match day 22 may have the chance to do just that at the expense of relegated Amidaus who will be hell bent on giving their home fans something to smile about before they take off for Division Two soccer.

    Elsewhere, one time relegation threatened Pure Joy will take on the relegated Roberto FC who last won on match day 15 at home, Nania FC will welcome Tema Youth and Sporting Mirren will take on Kotoku Royals at home.

    Wonder Club - Accra Gt. Olympics’ - quest to return to the Premier League division got a major boost this past Monday after their protest against Amidaus Professionals for fielding an unqualified player in their Match Day 27 match was upheld by the FA Disciplinary Committee.

    Gt. Olympics lost the Day 27 encounter to the relegation threatened Amidaus by two goals to three but filed a protest against their hosts for fielding two unqualified players; Musah Sani and Adam Suleman.

    On Musah Sani (player in jersey number 8), Accra Great Olympics FC contended that the player received yellow cards in Match Days 13, 19 and 26 of the GN Bank Division League. The Petitioner stated that the player should not have been fielded against Accra Great Olympics FC in the Match Day 27 match.

    In the case of Adam Suleman (player in jersey number 32), Accra Great Olympics FC contended that the player received yellow cards in Match Days 17, 20 and 26 of the GN Bank Division League. The Petitioner stated that the player should not have been fielded against Accra Great Olympics FC in the Match Day 27 match.

    Accra Gt. Olympics attached caution statements from the Division One League Board to support their case and consequently, demanded that by the application of Article 34(1)(e) of the General Regulations of the GFA the match points should be awarded in their favour.

    In its ruling, the Disciplinary Committee gave several decisions including the following;

    1. That for fielding the two unqualified players, Musah Sani (player in jersey number 8) and Adam Suleman (player in jersey number 32) in the Match Day 27 match, Amidaus Professionals FC shall forfeit the match in accordance with Article 34(1)(e) of the General Regulations of the GFA.

    2. That having been found to have forfeited the match, Amidaus Professionals 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 Accra Great Olympics FC in accordance with Articles 34(2) and 34(10) of the General Regulations of the GFA.

    Consequently, Gt. Olympics who had a point advantage over the pursuing Heart of Lions and Okyeman Planners opened a 4point gap atop the Division One Zone 3 log and thus have to win just one of their next two remaining matches to win their zone and a return to tier-one soccer.

    The result of the ruling did not bode well for the relegation threatened Amidaus Professionals whose total points tally for the season dropped to 25, and will not be able to make it out of the drop zone should they win their remaining two matches as the current tally for the first safe spot held by Pure Joy is 34 points. Amidaus thus join the already relegated King Solomon and Roberto FC to the abyss of Division Two soccer.

    In a related development Gt. Olympics’ protest against Okyeman Planners for fielding an unqualified player in their match against Danbort FC was dismissed by the FA Disciplinary Committee.
