SPORTS CLUB VILLA is set to appeal against a FUFA disciplinary committee decision that nullified a ruling by the UPL Board secretariat that awarded the club three points and three goals.
A press statement released by Ivan Kakembo, the Villa Chief Executive Officer, reads in part.
“This statement is to express our displeasure and dissatisfaction with the verdict because there was conflict interest”.
“One member of the committee was supposed to withdraw himself from the committee as stipulated by FUFA disciplinary code, that official never did.
“It’s on that background that we appeal this verdict”.
The committee, comprising of Godfrey Odur (Chairman), Jacob Lubega (secretary) and Edirisa Kasalira (member) nullified a ruling by the UPL Board that awarded Villa three points.
URA FC’s strength of the appeal was the video evidence presented before the FUFA disciplinary committee.
This follows URA appeal that had lodged, protesting the UPL board’s ruling after Villa had filed that URA used Saidi Kyeyune for the game.
“We presented evidence to the committee with the video evidence.
“The report talks of booking a player (Kyeyune) yet he had been substituted. Good enough, we record all our games” Henry Mayeku, secretary of URA noted.
After the verdict, that followed a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Kira Young on Tuesday at Namboole stadium, Villa lies second with two games to play in Uganda Premier League season.
Friday should give us green light on whom between log leaders Vipers and SC Villa wins the Uganda Premier League (UPL) title.
“Our plea to the FUFA appeals’ committee through the FUFA Competitions Committee is to have the game against Vipers (on Friday) postponed until our appeal is disposed off”.
Vipers currently top on 63 points, one ahead of Villa. The two face off at Nakivubo on Friday in the penultimate game of the season.
