Football group's appeal dismissed

April 25, 2003

The Laurel Football Association failed to win reinstatement into Anne Arundel County's youth football league last night, months after being banned for allegedly falsifying documents so that ineligible children could play.

The county's Department of Recreation and Parks threw the association out of its league in January.

Last night, the five-member county Board of Appeals dismissed the association's appeal of the ban, ruling that the association should have first requested a review by the recreation department appeals board.
