One of the renowned Football club in the country Old Edwardians Secretary General Austin Thomas has written a protest letter to the Premier League Board (PLB) Executive Secretary.
In the letter that was dated Thursday April 22 stated among other things that the Premier League Board had not been treating them fairly and they were disgusted with the board’s behavior to the point that they had to register their protest.
The letters reads; “at the beginning of the second round of the Premier League, they requested postponement of their first game due to financial constraint affecting the club, this was rightly rejected by the board and we had to play under very difficult condition and other teams were granted such dispensation.
Last Wednesday 21st April, we had to play a match that should have been postponed because the Heroes Foundation was having their international tournament and the match against Wusum Stars was played for free as Heroes Foundation match was Le 1,000 and the match ended 30 minutes before the kick-off of Edwards match, thereby causing the team immense financial loss.
Last weekend because of the same Heroes match, the PLB cancelled the matches and undue advantage was taken on us for reasons best known to them.
Secondly, they have played six matches while other clubs are yet to play three. It is unacceptable and undue advantage that is being taken by the board on Old Edwardians.
This Friday the team has been scheduled to play in Kono which will be their seventh match and the Wusum match that we were envisaging to get the finances from was played for free, how does the Premier League board expect us to honour that fixture this Friday.
As a club we demand an answer as well as compensation from the Premier League Board for the treatment meted out on and for us to honour our next match this Friday
In conclusion the letter stated that they hope that the Premier League Board will show understanding and treat all the teams fairly and squarely.
