Players will have to pass MRI examination before being eligible to play in the amended Reserve Premier League.
The Ghana FA Congress on Wednesday resolved to lower the age limit for the reserve league from under twenty years to under seventeen years.
This means players beyound the age of 17 will no longer be eligible to play in the reserve league from the 2014/15 football season.
The authenticity of the ages of players eligible to play in the reserve league will however be verified through MRI examination.
It is this same device that is used to check the ages of player for the CAF U17 Championships and the Ghana FA wants to apply the same rule for the Reserve Premier League.
“The thing is that all players to play in the reserve league will be made to go through MRI examination,” he told Kumasi-based Kessben FM.
“This means all players playing in the reserve league will qualify to play for the national U17 team.
“This will also eliminate age-cheating and the issue of over-aged players.”
The Reserve Premier League is a competition organized by the Ghana FA for the youth sides of all Premier division clubs.
It is however played in two sectors – the northern for teams around the northern part of Ghana and the southern for teams in the southern part of the country in order to limit associated costs.
