    These are two separate competitions and the DFA is not the organizer of it hence any sanction or disciplinary measure taken by us or on our behalf does not apply to the CREOLE CUP. Hence SALTON BANNIS or any other player who is under bann, suspension etc can participate in that competition.

    DETON BANNIS have a red card and he cannot play tomorrow I hope the DFa taking note.
