Bangura looses right to asylum

Bangura looses right to asylum

Just as things were looking up on the field, Watford Football Club have today been hit with the blow of losing Al Bangura.

The verdict of the Hornet's midfielders trial was delivered late yesterday afternoon and today the club have announced the 19 year-olds fate.

Bangura attended a hearing in a Middlesex court at the beginning of the month, after which, the outlook looked positive. The judge overseeing the case was understanding of Bangura's situation and it looked like Al would be let off.

However, less than the maximum of 28 days later, Bangura has been given the bad news. Bangura, who become a father just 10 days ago for the first time would leave his young child and girlfriend behind should he leave.

The football club are already planning an appeal to the courts decision, although no other details have yet been given.

Chairman Graham Simpson spoke earlier this afternoon on TALKsport Radio Station, on the 'Hawksbee and Jacobs show' and the station appears keen to back Bangura's case.

TALKsport are not the only people taking the young midfielders side, Gloryhorns, a Watford fans site have also lent their support by starting a heavily-laden petition.
