Ekwendeni Hammers complains about officiation

Rookies Ekwendeni Hammers has lodged a complaint to Super League of Malawi complaining about poor officiating in their previous matches.

In a letter signed by Team Manager, Akim Kawirikira Lutepo, the entire team is upseted with what happened in their previous three matches.

They letter pointed that the officiation has costed them vital points which could have lift them to a better position on the log table.

Part of the letter reads: “Match against MAFCO at Mzuzu stadium which ended 1 all, the opponent equalised at ninety seventh minute. This was too much an additional time. The head coach had his stop watch in check and only four minutes would have been added on the stop watch”

Last week against Mighty Tigers our opponents played with twelve players on the pitch and there was a very compromising, incompetent and biased officiation the following day against Red Lions which we lost 1-0 as the fourth official denied four goals that we scored”

The letter further asked SULOM to take action and make sure officiation sanity is being applied to the rest of the TNM Super League matches.

Other teams that have also cried over the decisions of referees are Silver Strikers, Blue Eagles and Mtopwa FC.

But last week chairman for referees association of Malawi Chris Kalichero rubbished the complaints by saying Super League coaches should learn to concede defeats rather than using officiation as a scapegoat.
