Harlem Strikers were declared Central Football Association treble crown winners after it was awarded the Premier Division “Big-Six” title via protest action earlier this week. Strikers which had already won the CFA Ramsingh’s Sportworld FA Trophy and Sanitank League Cup lodged a protest on December 10, 2011 to the CFA’s Disciplinary Committee (DC) against Caroni Samba for the use of three players whom they claimed were not rightfully transferred from their previous clubs before playing in the competition. The players were Kwame Wiltshire, Nigel Daniel and Kemo Narcis. On December 23, 2011, the CFA’s DC agreed to accept as evidence a second letter from Strikers on the basis it referred to information in the first letter that three other players, Aaron Downing, Trevon Forbes and Fabian Lewis were identified only by facial recognition while verbal submission to include another player, Devon Drayton by the complainant was not accepted as it was ruled unconstitutional by the DC. In its response the DC which comprised Lennox Smith, Jimmy Henry and Michelle Williams noted it considered evidence as provided by both clubs and other evidence provided by the association’s records. In its ruling the DC said it was evident that at the day of the match involving both clubs, which Caroni won 4-1 (December 10), the quintet of Daniel, Wiltshire, Narcis, Forbes and Lewis were duly registered to play with Caroni.
