PSL Disciplinary Committee On Ndoro

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee have confirmed that the protests filed by Orlando Pirates and Polokwane City regarding the alleged misconduct of Ajax Cape Town in fielding Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro have been dismissed. 

Pirates filed a protest in a match they lost 3-0 with Ndoro scoring one of the goals, while City filed theirs before a 1-1 drawn match.

Full statement from the PSL:

“The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has handed down a filing in respect of the Protests lodged by Orlando Pirates FC and Polokwane City FC against Ajax Cape Town FC for fielding the player Tendai Ndoro against them in matches which took place on 31 January 2018 and 04 February 2018 respectively.

“The Disciplinary Committee found that Mr. Ndoro’s eligibility had already been ruled upon by the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber as the issue of his eligibility fell within its sphere of jurisdiction.

“In the circumstances, the Disciplinary Committee ruled that it lacked the necessary jurisdiction to hear the Protests and they were both dismissed. The Protesting clubs; Orlando Pirates FC and Polokwane City FC were ordered to pay the costs of the hearing.

“The appeal hearing against the DRC’s decision is set down for hearing on Monday 26 March 2018 before Adv. N. Cassim SC.”
