0
Silver Strikers carelessness when they featured suspended national team midfielder Green Harawa has come back to haunt with after Super League of Malawi (Sulom) forfeited three points they earned after beating Kamuzu Barracks on May 7.
Silver won the game 1-0 played Silver Stadium on May 7, fielded the  players who had accumulated two yellow cards and was expected to miss the match.
Sulom found Silver guilty and determined that they lost the game to Kamuzu Barracks 2-0, pay K300,000 while the player would be suspended for three games.
“The League notes that Silver Strikers did not control the use of a suspended player in their match on 7th May, 2014 against Kamuzu Barracks.  Green Harawa contravened rules and regulations by accepting to be featured in the game against Kamuzu Barracks despite knowing that he was suspended for the match having been cautioned twice in previous games,” states the ruling, signed by Sulom General Secretary, Williams Banda.
“The league would like to condemn the conduct of Silver Strikers in strongest terms and would like to remind Silver Strikers that it is bound by the rules and regulation.”
Sulom acted swiftly on a complaint from Kamuzu Barracks which they lodged to the Super League governing body on May 8, a day after the game.
The incident is a drawback to the Super League defending champions who had started the campaign on a negative nine points as punishment for the violence on December 28 during as game Mighty Wanderers at Balaka Stadium last season.
However Sulom slapped the soldiers with K120,000 fine for arriving late for the same game.
Kamuzu Barracks have now climbed to position four with nine points from five games while Silver anchor the team with -2 points.
