A letter available to us is that the Court Of Arbitration of Sports (CAS) has lifted the GFA ban placed on 21 players involved in the Ashgold vs Inter Allies match-fixing scandal with immediate effect.
“This was after an appeal was filed on the players behalf by FIFPRO through the PFAG.
“The players include Frank Akoto, Eric Esso, Amos Kofi Nkrumah, Empem Dacosta, Paul Devries Asare, Amos Addai, Stephen Owusu Banahene etc who were all banned for 24 months.
“Meanwhile, Kotoko’s Richmond Lamptey whose name was not in the appeal process is having his matter considered by CAS following Kotoko’s application.
