Brideg boys tossed out



The Nigeria National League (NNL) has announced its decision to withdraw Bridge FC from the ongoing 2012/2013 season.

The NNL explained that this follows the inability of the Lagos-based club to complete registration formalities as at the time of the withdrawal.

NNL secretary, Ayo Abdul Rahman said Bridge FC were not able to register for the ongoing season despite a one-week grace given to them by the management of the league.

Rahman noted that the decision to withdraw the club from the league was in line with Article 2.0(1) of the rules governing the NNL.

The NNL scribe urged all the state football associations and clubs in the NNL to take note of the decision while he regrets the inconveniences the decision may have caused them. He noted that the club have been removed from the 2012/2013 NNL fixtures.

Bridge FC, which would have campaigned in the league as Fountain FC, had hitches coming into the season as their early game against Remo Stars was put off to allow for proper documentation and completion of registration.
