Starlets claim that the Federation had a list of dropped players from various teams in the Women’s top-flight league and Trans Nzoia had confirmed parting ways with ten of their players.
These players included: Vidah Akinyi, Cynthia Achieng, Daisy Chepkwemoi, Nyambusi Jeniffer, Pauline Kirui, Betty Nafula, Doricus Nanjala, Judith Omega, Phoebe Mwangale, and Valentine Cherop.
The team wants Falcons punished for pulling such a move with the Federation already acknowledging getting their letter.
The loss saw Starlets dragged back to the relegation dogfight with the team currently on 13 points with Falcons moving to 8th position with 16 points.
