BIZARRE: Why the biggest scorelines in GHPL history were erased from the records

first_imgFootball in Ghana has served up some of the most bizarre but interesting stories over the years. From teams refusing to field the maximum number of players due to superstition, to referees being chased off the pitch by angry fans, Ghana has had its fair share of controversies on the field of play. In the 1988/89 Ghana Premier League season, four teams; Hasaacas, BA United, Eleven Wise and Man U served up what will probably go down as the most bizarre story in GHPL history. In a season that was characterized with controversy and court action, Hasaacas and BA United headed into the last day of the league tied on 21 one points in the relegation battle, with BA United’s superior goal difference of three goals giving them the slight edge. Secondi Hasaacas faced neighbours Secondi Eleven Wise on the last day, knowing their only chance of survival was either to better the result of BA United, or win with a bigger margin than United, in case the Brong Ahafo side also won their home game against bottom of the table Man U. There were strong suspicions before the game, that the matches would be fixed, and what ensued raised even more talking points. Hasaacas thumped Eleven Wise 19-0, while BA United walloped Man U 20-0 in Sunyani. The public were infuriated by these results, prompting the Ghana Football Association to take action. The results were rendered null and void by the Ghana FA, who banned all four clubs in involved for 6 months, in addition to a ₵250,000 fine to each of the four, to be paid in 10 days. Eleven Wise and Man U, later had their bams extended to two years, after they failed to pay their fines within the stipulated time. The sanctions imposed on the clubs by the GFA were later in the year removed by the Ministry of Sports.last_img read more


first_imgThe famous Frankie Kennedy Winter School is to be wound down.Frankie KennedyThe school, which was established in 1994 to remember the famous musician, is currently run by the Mooney and Kennedy families.However the families have said the school has become too big and it will now be organised Comharchumann Forbartha Ghaoth Dobhair. As of next year, the group will run events and music classes in its place.Frankie was born in Belfast in 1955, became one of Ireland’s best known traditional flute players through his work with the band Altan which he managed and founded with his partner Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh.Frankie and Mairéad set the seeds for Altan with their ground breaking album Ceol Aduaidh on the Gael Linn label.Frankie, a naturally gifted teacher and communicator, was part of a robust wave of young Northern flute players who came to the fore in the ’70s and ’80s. Like his contemporaries, Frankie drew inspiration from the older generation of Ulster musicians and singers. Scoil Gheimhridh Frankie Kennedy was established in December 1994 following Frankie’s untimely death from cancer in September of that year.The school’s vision is to continue his huge contribution to Irish traditional music, especially the music and song of Donegal.This year’s event, the last Frankie Kennedy Winter School by that name, will run at the end of December with dates to be confirmed. END OF AN ERA AS FRANKIE KENNEDY WINTER SCHOOL TO CLOSE was last modified: October 24th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Frankie Kennedy Winter Schoollast_img read more
