Nyasa Big Bullets has not yet appealed against Fhttp://www.fam.mw/tnm-super-league/ootball Association of Malawi’s (FAM) decision to bar them from taking part in the next edition of the Airtel Top 8.
FAM General Secretary Alfred Gunda said the Big Bullets were given a deadline of Monday 21st January 2019 but the people’s team as they are called by their fans, did not appeal.
“The deadline was Monday and we did not get an appeal from Nyasa Big Bullets”, Gunda said.
On their part the Big Bullets through their Chief Executive Officer Fleetwood Haiya said “all I can say is that Nyasa Big Bullets will hold a press briefing soon to tell the nation our position on the matter and the reason for the decision”.
This was the second time for Big Bullets to be given a chance to appeal by FAM after the first appeal was not considered due to late submission.
The Big Bullets were banned from taking part in the 2019 Airtel Top 8 and were fined K7.2 Million by FAM for the scenes that occurred during the final match of the 2018 edition against Blue Eagles at the Bingu National Stadium which the Area 30 based side won 1-0 through a penalty spot kick converted by Stuart Mbunge which started the ugly scenes.
In this case the Big Bullets will not appeal, the Kasungu based side, TN Stars which finished on position 9 in the TNM Super League will fill the 8th slot in the next edition of the Airtel Top 8.
