THE principals of Naparima and St Benedicts Colleges have issued an “unreserved apology” for breaching the sponsorship rules of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL).
A release issued by Azaad Mohammed-Khan, General Secretary of the SSFL, said a meeting was held on Thursday by the executive of the league to discuss the matter involving Premier Division schools Naparima College and St Benedict’s College as it relates to breach of sponsorship rules specifically branding on playing shirts.
He said the members held a discussion via a conference call with the principals of Naparima College and St Benedict’s College Dr Michael Dowlath and Gregory Quan Kep respectively.
The release stated, “Both principals issued an unreserved apology during the conference call for their action on Wednesday and have agreed to comply with all rules and regulations of the League going forward.
“The SSFL Executive also agreed to recommend to the General Council that no action be taken against the two schools but any school that breaches these rules in the future will be immediately suspended.
“However the final decision will be made when the General Council meets on Monday.
The SSFL and its partners now look forward to an incident-free season of competitive football and Fair Play for 2019.”
