Football Kenya Federation has moved to credit three points in Ushuru FC’s favor after Kisumu All Stars was adjudged to have fielded an ineligible player in their match played on Sunday, April 15, 2018, at Camp Toyoyo.
All Stars striker Billy Agai, who was sent off for two-bookable offenses in their match against Western Stima on April 8, 2018, was fielded against Ushuru, despite being under suspension.
“In accordance with rule 3.5 of the Rules of Kenyan Football, “A club which fields a suspended or ineligible player will forfeit all matches in which the player was illegally fielded,” we wish to inform you that your club has forfeited the match and the same has been awarded to Ushuru FCon a 3 points, 2 goals basis,” read part of the letter sent to Kisumu All-Stars.
All-Stars have since dropped to eighth, following the decision, with 18 points from 11 matches. Ushuru, meanwhile, has risen to seventh with 18 points, similar to Kisumu All Stars, but with an inferior goal difference.
