PRINCIPAL of Fyzabad Secondary Troy Jebodhsingh is taking a no-nonsense approach to the football fiasco that is surrounding his school, as all footballers at the school are now being punished for the unfortunate situation faced by the Premier Division team.
The Fyzabad Premier Division team were kicked out of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) on Thursday. Two players on the team, despite not writing any CSEC examinations, were accepted into Lower Six in September. The SSFL made the decision to throw the Premier Division team out of the SSFL and pass all documents to the Ministry of Education to conduct further investigations. Minister of Education Anthony Garcia, confirmed with Newsday on Friday that a thorough investigation will be done.
President of the SSFL William Wallace did not punish the other football teams at the school, but the Fyzabad prinicipal made the decision to suspend all the other football teams.
Wallace said, "We (SSFL) did not penalise those teams so they were free to play in those divisions - Girls, Under-14 and Under-16 - but we received a letter however from the principal yesterday (Friday), saying that he has suspended all football in his school. He is doing an internal investigation."
