GPL loses key actors
Theresah Bremansu and Delight Alorbu have failed to make it among the referees who will officiate in the second round of the season while Solomon Asante and Richard Kissi-Boateng have left for DR Congo.
The referees were unable to pass the required tests in recent weeks for the final round which resumes this weekend. Fifa rules stipulate that female referees have to pass the same tests as male officials, something which proved a tad difficult for the refs this time.
The two acted as match referees in the GPL's first round, with Emmanuella Aglago and Beatrice Thaud were assistant referees.
On the player front, Richard Kissi-Boateng and Solomon Asante have arrived at TP Mazembe and pending completion of medicals on Friday, will sign for the club.
Both were players of Berekum Chelsea whose sterling displays got them spots in the Black Stars. Asante played in every game in the 2013 African Cup, while Richard Kissi-Boateng only played in the third place match.
Richard has been given the 27 jersey, with Asante wearing the 20 shirt.
The departure of these two - some of the league's best - further deepens the debate about the commitment of all stakeholders to increase the profile of the local game.
