Chelsea have moved up to fifth place on the Ghana Premier League table after winning an appeal against a Ghana FA ruling to deduct them points.
The Disciplinary Committee’s ruling last month declared Chelsea losers of all their matches played after 04 February until they settle their indebtedness to WAFA in respect of Solomon Asante’s transfer fees.
But the club won an appeal last Thursday and have regained the 12 points deducted from their build up and lie sixth on the table.
The 2011 champions are tied on points with Medeama, a side who beat them 1-0 in Tarkwa in February.
Also, clubs like Asante Kotoko, Sekondi Hasaacas and Great Olympics who benefited from the points deduction have all be affected.
Olympics have dropped from the top half of the table to 13th place and Kotoko have slipped to eighth.
Berekum Chelsea are yet to lose at home this season.
In another development, the GFA Appeals Committee has ruled that the GN Bank Division One League Match day One game between King Faisal and Cape Coast Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs should be replayed.
This decision sets aside the Disciplinary Committee ruling which awarded three points and three goals to Ebusua Dwarfs with King Faisal also losing three (3) points from the club’s accumulated points from previous matches.
King Faisal filed an appeal against that ruling and in its decision delivered on 16th April, 2015.
