Rockets of Wa give reasons for not honouring league match

Division one side Wa Rockets has apologised for failing to turn up for their week 19 away league match against FC Tanga in Bolga.


The team Manager of the side, Salifu Oromah, explained to the GNA sports in an interview that, the vehicle on which they were travelling on to honour the match developed a mechanical fault.

“We were on our way to honour the match before the bus broke down. We made several attempts to meet the match time but it was too late for us” Oromah explained.

Mr. Oromah, describing the difficulties they went through, said “when the bus broke down somewhere around Chana, there was no network coverage in the area so we had to go back to Tumu where we reported to the Police before arranging for another bus from Wa. We made this known to the Match Commissioner.”

“We traced and explained this to the match commissioner when we got to Bolga around 19;00 hours and explained to him that we were actually on our way to honour the match before the bus broke down.” he stated.

Oromah also blamed their inability to get to the match venue on time greatly on the financial difficulties the club was going through.
“It is part of it, in fact the main reason. Because we wouldn’t have rented the first bus, if not for the financial difficulties. We have no team bus so it becomes very difficult for us to travel.”

He was positive that the Division one league board will not sanction them for not turning up for the match, but rather give them the opportunity to honour the match by re-scheduling the game.

“They will give us a replay by all means, because it was not intentional since we were on our way to honour the match.”
