Ghanaian Premier League campaigners Dreams FC have been demoted to Division One while Tema Youth are promoted to the top-flight following the ruling by the Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Wednesday. The Appeals Committee was forced by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to hear the case after Tema Youth petitioned the Switzerland-based body claiming justice was not delivered in two previous hearings by the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA.
CAS ordered for the case of the use of Cudjoe Mensah by Dreams FC to be re-examined with Tema Youth claiming the player was unqualified to play when the two sides clashed in a match that decided who played in the Premier League last season. Even though previous ruling by the Disciplinary Committee found that Mensah was unqualified to play it refused to hold Dreams FC responsible. The Appeals Commitee finally ruled 0n Wednesday that CUDJOE MENSAH was unqualified to play in the match between TEMA YOUTH and DREAMS and the latter must be held liable for the irregular registration of the player.
