Sheffield United challenges SLFA’s decision in Sierra Leone

Following the match played between Sheffield United FC and Brookfields FC at the National Stadium in which the former Club used two illegal players, the Sierra Leone Football

Association (SLFA), the parent body for all football activities in the country, has ordered that three points and three goals be given to Brookfields FC.


Speaking to Standard Sports, Fred Clay, Chief Executive, Sheffield United FC, stated categorically that they are not happy with the decision of the FA and are ready to take legal action against the FA.

He opined that the decision is also a sly strategy to get away with some advantage as the congress of the FA draws nearer in which Brookfields United FC is a legitimate body that has the power to vote.

Mr. Unisa Alim Sesay a.k.a. Awoko, Chairman, Western Area Football Association (WAFA), maintained that the Association is still standing by its decision of awarding one point to each of the teams in question. He added, “I will only make a statement when I receive any letter bearing such ordeal from the FA. We are independent body, and we have our own mandate.”
