The Premier League Board have postponed the Premier League game between Tema Youth and Hearts of Oak.
The Harbour-based side requested for the postponement of their opening League fixture at home due to the unavailability of four of their key players.
Defender Jeremiah Ankorful and midfield duo Derrick Mensah and Moses Odjie as well as Francis Narh have travelled with the country’s Under-20 team to Morocco ahead of the return fixture of the 2013 African Youth qualifier this weekend.
Article 13 of the Ghana Football Association’s regulations clearly stipulates that any team that contributes more than three players to the national team will have their match deferred upon request.
The fixture has now been pushed to Wednesday October 10 – at a time that the quartets would have arrived in time from Rabat.
Youth want to have the full compliments of their team ahead of the big game against the capital-based side.
