New Premier Soccer League Prosecutor Zola Majavu has wasted little time to get stuck into the business, after confirming that Cape Town City have been charged after being found guilty for a matter relating to their clash against Maritzburg United last year.
In December, Maritzburg played their clash against City under protest after the Citizens were unable to produce players' cards. City appeared in front of the PSL disciplinary committee on Wednesday, January 12, and pleaded guilty.
The Siya crew reported that the car of City's team manager was broken into before the game and his bag, with the team sheet and player cards, were stolen.
A sanction has been reserved and will be communicated by the PSL by no later than next Tuesday, according to Majavu.
"I can confirm that Cape Town City football was duly charged and appeared before the DC earlier today. The charges emanated from a protest which was lodged by Maritzburg United Football Club, in relation to a fixture that was played in the absence of the responded club being in possession of the requisite players cards. The matter proceeded today and was almost finalised. The responded club, which is Cape Town City, pleaded guilty as charged and were duly convicted," Majavu said, via the PSL's media department.
"Submissions with regard to the appropriate sanction were also made by all relvant parties and in that regard, the final sanction is reserved by the disciplinary committee. The indication is that a sanction would be received by no later than next week Tuesday. As soon as it's available, I will communicate it accordingly."
