English football fans got the treat of a lifetime to see the English FA Cup trophy up close and personal as the prestigious trophy came to our shores on Monday.
Defeated 2015 FA Trophy finalists DIRECTV W Connection, have for the second time had their protest over the final thrown out.
FA TROPHY winners North East Stars believe they have done nothing wrong which will prevent them hanging onto the 2015 title they won on Sunday. “I don’t see that North East Stars have done anything wrong,” stated Stars owner Darryl Mahabir.
Not Taking that
DIRECTV W CONNECTION have already appealed a decision by the Disciplinary Committee of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) to dismiss their protest over North East Stars’ use of striker Gorian Highley in the FA Trophy final on March 29.
