The Premier Soccer League (PSL) will seek leave to appeal the ruling made by Judge Nadine Fisher in the now infamous Tendai Ndoro eligibility case. The PSL’s Executive Committee met on Thursday to discuss the ruling and plot a way forward.
PSL chairperson Irvin Khoza announced late on Thursday that the committee had resolved, after careful and considered deliberations, to seek leave to appeal the ruling.
Khoza said the decision was yet to be ratified by the PSL’s Board of Governors and noted that the PSL would provide further details once the board had met on 12 July to ratify the resolution.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Khoza said the Executive Committee would provide the Board of Governors with all the facts and evidence in the matter so they can decide whether the ratify the appeal.
Khoza called on the media and public to be patient and allow the board the time and space to properly evaluate the information at their disposal. He said once the board had made their decision the information would be released to the public.
Kickoff.co.za reported that the PSL would hold another meeting next week to decide whether the appeal would be launched at the Supreme Court of Appeals or with the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Sport24.com reported that Judge Fisher’s ruling to set aside the findings by arbitrator William Mokhari which cost Ajax Cape Town points for fielding an ineligible player in Tendai Ndoro has thrown the PSL into chaos.
The ruling in effect reinstated Ajax to 15th on the PSL log which impacts other clubs who were relegated or promoted.
Khoza admitted that recent events could conspire to delay the start of the new PSL season which is scheduled to start on 3 August. Khoza said his team was working hard to ensure that the season started as scheduled, but he noted that in life there are no certainties.
