came across is that some of the clubs were not fully apprised what the issues were and it became obvious that the various groups who had signed the letter had varying agenda.
“I think that everything has been resolved amicably. You see the teams that would’ve been protesting are now on the court playing and that is good to see so we expect the league should be finishing as normal,” he added.
It was the very peaceful and swift conclusion to a matter that seemingly stemmed from the BVA’S decision to resume a very contentious match between rivals Chargers and Deacons.
Referee Kirk Hinds blew off the contest in Chargers’ favour when Deacons threatened to walk off the court following the expulsions of Andrew Culpepper and Ronald Rice.
The BVA’S competition jury then ruled that the game be continued from the second set after judging that Culpepper’s actions did not merit disqualification.
But that correspondence didn’t reach the clubs before they issued a letter to the BVA asking for clarity on the ruling before they played another match.
Chargers, Foundation United and All Stars did not turn up at Oldbury last week Monday, and Chargers were again a no-show for Wednesday’s rescheduled fixture with Deacons.
Good to go
“The meeting had an outcome. It might not have been favourable one way or the next but out of the meeting it was agreed we will get back to playing games. So it is what it is. So I will say that everyone is good to go,” said Chargers president Dale Addison.
“I am glad volleyball has started back for people that want to play. I didn’t think we should have to play over that Deacons match but at the end of the day it’s not up to me.”
