2015 AYC: Red card for Young Scorpions

Gambia have been disqualified from the 2015 Africa Youth Championship billed for Senegal by the organising committee of the competition.

The decision follows a protest by Liberia on some players of Gambia during the first leg on Sunday, April 6, 2014, which the Young Scorpions won 1 – 0.

Sampierre Mendy, Buba Sanneh, Bubacarr Trawally, Saloum Fall and Ali Sowe were all born in 1994 and are not qualified to participate in the competition reserved for players born on or after 1 January 1995, as stated in a circular dated September 2, 2013 sent to all member associations of CAF.

With this, the return leg billed for April 25 – 27 is disregarded with Liberia moving to the next round.
