LATEST- PSL elects to appeal High Court decision reinstating Ajax Cape Town

JOHANNESBURG- The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has decided to appeal the High Court decision that ruled that Ajax Cape Town should be reinstated back into the league and reassured Boards of Governors (BoG) that next season will start as scheduled.

On July 2 Judge Denis Fisher set aside Advocate William Mokhari’s arbitration award that Ajax be deducted nine points from last season’s final PSL log for matches in which they fielded Tendai Ndoro‚ leaving them on 24 points‚ in last place‚ and automatically relegated.

Ndoro by FIFA rules is an ineligible because he played for three teams in one season.

PSL chairman Irvin Khoza  confirmed that the PSL will appeal the decision after reporting to the BoG.

“We reported to the BoG on the Ajax-Ndoro matter‚” Khoza said.

“The Executive Committee have decided to appeal the matter and had a responsibility to give a progress report on the status of the matter [to the BoG].

“We also arrived at a decision that‚ whatever happens‚ the new [PSL] season will start as planned on August 4. All competitions will start as scheduled.”

Khoza said if their leave to appeal was not granted the matter would be referred to Fifa’s Players Status Committee.
