Fgura United lodged the first protest of the 2015-16 football season as yesterday they filed a complaint at the Malta FA offices against the result of Sunday’s BOV Division One match against Hamrun Spartans.

Hamrun won the match 3-1 with Nigerian striker Haruna Garba netting a hat-trick.

However, Fgura are contending that their opponents had fielded an ineligible player.

In fact, they are contesting that Orosco Anonam, who played the full match, was not eligible to feature for his new team as he was due to serve a one-match suspension he picked on the final day of last season when he played for former club Pieta Hotspurs.

The Malta FA Protests Board has not yet set a date to hear the case but it is understood that it will be before this weekend’s programme, starting with Friday’s match between St George’s and Fgura at the Centenary Stadium.
