Suspension on coach reduced following appeal

A three-match ban on Sirens coach Roland Sollars following the BOV Third Division match between Sirens and Naxxar Lions which was played on April 30 was reduced following an appeal by the club.

The Appeals Board heard the testimony of referee Jude Amin Utulu, assistant referees Chris Francalanza and Roberto Vella on one side, assistant coach Ray Xuereb, reserve goalkeeper Richard Vella on the other.

The Board partially upheld the appeal and reduced the ban from three matches to one and fined Sollars €40.

Meanwhile Roland Sollars’ term as Sirens coach came to an end after the two parties parted ways at the end of the season.
