HIGH drama has enveloped the latter stages of the Kenna season after it was decreed an independent panel will decide if the wrong team went through from the group stage.
The Walthamstow Reds manager’s best ever chance of maiden silverware in 13 years of trying are under threat.
An appeal lodged by the Tactical Brambler claims his side took six points in in Group B rather than three.
Tactical Brambler’s appeal: “I don’t think the Krakow cup results were done properly, I got more than 3 points I think, but they had this down and I didn’t get out the groups. I mentioned this previously and someone was going to check, but i don’t think it’s been done. Am I still in the competition. Will I win it?”
Given the Tactical Brambler’s goal difference in the group, his FC Testiculadew side would have progressed at the expense of Walthamstow Reds.
However, if FC Testiculadew had gone through they would have lost to AJFC, with the latter beating Young Boys in the next round.
Reds currently sit six points ahead of Pikey Scum after the first leg of the semi final.
AJFC would be eight points behind Pikey Scum.
Kenna HQ statement: “As the three managers involved are Kenna committee members [Reds, Scum and AJFC], Kenna HQ has decreed each manager will pick one other manager to form an independent panel.”
The impartial panel will decide whether Walthamstow Reds or AJFC continue in the cup.
The three managers made their picks earlier today.
Reds manager: “I would like to nominate the Pirate as my candidate because, y’know, FUN.”
Pikey Scum manager: “Assuming he’s not going to weasel himself into the running, I think the Tactical Brambler should get the prestige of adding ‘member of the Kenna league clerical error adjudication panel (2018)’ to his c.v. as he spotted the error, so he can be my rep.”
AJFC manager: “Thieving Magpies.”
A decision will be published on Friday.
