GHALCA unhappy with Ghana Premier League clubs

The vice chairman of the Ghana League Club’s Association (GHALCA), Isaac Koomson, says clubs have contributed to the entity’s recent struggles.

The body, encompassing members from the Ghana Premier League as well as the first and second divisions, seeks to promote collective input to enhance domestic football.

However, the GHALCA has been accused of lack of professionalism, in addition to allegations of financial misappropriations by its leaders.

“Let’s limit ourselves to the Premier League clubs, ask them if they honour their annual subscriptions,” Koomson told MetroFM.

“These are the same clubs that have been saying all sort of things about GHALCA. Meanwhile, ask them if they have been paying their dues to GHALCA.

“Ask them the last time they paid their subscriptions to GHALCA. I am giving you an assignment on this topic.

“Call Ashanti Gold and ask them if they have paid their GHALCA affiliation fee for this year and that of last year and last two years. Call Kotoko and ask them the same.

“Call all the Premier League clubs and report to me your findings.They do not pay.”

Earlier this year, GHALCA chairman Alhaji Raji and treasurer George Amoako were accused by members of the body of failing to account for a loan of $9,000 contracted to defray part of a $30,000 debt owed Nigerian club Enugu Rangers for participating in the 2014 President’s Cup as guests.

The Nigerian outfit has denied receiving any such payments.
