( 23, 2015)-The Liberia Football Association (LFA) has granted clemency to three local clubs.

According to LFA President, Musa Bility, the three local clubs were de-registered last month by the LFA/CAF First Instant Board.

LPRC Oilers, Monrovia Club Breweries and Small Town FC were all de-registered for failing to meet the CAF’s club licensing requirements.

The three clubs will now be allowed participation in the pending LFA 2015 season’s league.
Mr. Bility, however, said the clubs will have to pay some fines to the local FA before participating in this year’s league.

In a related development, the local football house says it will not send air tickets to any un-attached Liberian footballer to come home for any national assignments.

Of recent, there have been reports in the media that Head Coach, James Debah, has invited several un-attached Liberian overseas players to form part of the National Soccer Team.

Mr. Bility told a news conference Wednesday that tickets will be send to only players attached to foreign clubs.
He vowed that the LFA will never go that riot, even if such un-attached players were wanted by Coach Debah.

The Liberia National Team Head Coach informed recently that he had identified over 35 overseas Liberian players, but failed to say whether, or not they were attached to overseas clubs.

The Lone Star is expected to play their Togolese counterparts, the Hawks, June 13 in a group “A” cracker for a place in the African Nation’s Cup Final due to take place in 2017 in Gabon.

Togo National Football Team Head Coach has named a provisional 30-man squared, including English Premiership player, Emmanuel Adebayo.

Coach Tom Saint Feict told the BBC that Adebayo will lead the Togolese line against Liberia.

The Hawks will take on Ghana Black Stars in a friendly early June before travelling to Monrovia to honor their African Nations Cup match with Liberia
