Referee James Fredrick, commonly known as Soe, from further participating in the 2013/14 edition of the tournament.

Referee Soe was assigned to Group IV in Greenville, Sinoe County, was expelled after the protest committee found him guilty of mishandling Sunday’s (December 15) football match between Nimba and Rivercess Counties, following a marathon investigation into a protest filed by Rivercess County.

The game ended 2 – 1 in favor of Nimba. But Rivercess protested on grounds that Referee Fredrick unfairly allowed Nimba’s winning goal.

The protest committee, comprising representatives of all sporting federations participating in the competition, MYS officials and other stakeholders, found Fredrick guilty of violating a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) governing the NCSM between the Liberia Referee Association (LRA) and MYS, which emphasizes strict adherence to the universal rules of football, including fair treatment of all participating teams by all referees and other game officials, a press release signed by Director of Public Affairs at the Ministry of Youth and Sports said last night.
