Silver Strikers appeal
Silver Strikers have appealed against Football Association of Malawi (Fam)’s K3.7 million fine and home ban for a year.
Silver were found guilty of nine counts of misconduct during an FDH Bank quarterfinal match against Nyasa Big Bullets last month.
The Bankers Chief Executive Officer Thokozani Chimbali said they had appealed against all counts.
“We have challenged both the fine and suspension but more details will follow,” he said.

General Secretary Alfred Gunda, while acknowledging receipt of the appeal, said Silver have the right to appeal.
“It is their right we will look at their case. They are supposed to pay K500,000 appeal fee before hearing of the case commences,” he said.
Silver have been fined K2 million and banned from playing at home for a period of one year for bringing the game of football into disrepute.
The Bankers were also fined K500,000 for beating and bullying opponents and match officials and another K500,000 for inciting hatred and violence.
Additionally, the club has also been fined K450,000 for disturbing team talk and K300,000 for insulting match officials.
Fam has also slapped controversial supporter Mulo Makina with a life ban with immediate effect.
