CAPE TOWN – The Premier Soccer League (PSL) disciplinary committee on Saturday dismissed the protests of Orlando Pirates and Polokwane City FC on the Tendai Ndoro issue. 

The PSL issued the following statement: “The PSL 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 4 February 2018 respectively. 

“The disciplinary committee found that 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.”
