Relegated Ajax in court bid to halt playoffs

Ajax Cape Town relegated after Ndoro judgment        By DESTINY MAN REPORTER

Ajax Cape Town has been found guilty of fielding Tendai Ndoro and they now forfeit the matches against Platinum Stars, Polokwane City and SuperSport United.

They lose all three matches 3-0 and have been fined R50,000 for each offence.

Ajax had finished 15th on the log with 31 points from 30 matches but the subtraction puts them below Platinum Stars‚ who were officially relegated at the weekend before Tuesday's ruling.

Ajax then made it public that they will be heading to High Court in Johannesburg.

"Amongst other issues, the club will seek to interdict the promotion playoffs from commencing on Wednesday 16th May at 15:00. During this season‚ the player is only eligible to play official matches for two clubs".

"This will be sought pending an urgent review of the arbitrator's award".

The Arbitrator also heard an appeal by Polokwane City FC against the fielding of Ndoro in their match as well as a Protest by SuperSport United. Ndoro was fielded in games against Platinum Stars, Polokwane City, SuperSport United, Cape Town City and Orlando Pirates.

Ajax Cape Town's high court application has been adjourned.

Chaos reigned in South African soccer yesterday as Ajax were effectively relegated by a decision from arbiter William Mokhari SC that they had acted wrongfully in playing Zimbabwe striker Tendai Ndoro earlier this season. The footballer himself receiving a two-match suspension.

"Ajax Cape Town are now consulting with their legal team regarding (arbitrator) William Mokhari SC's arbitration ruling released this morning". "Platinum Stars Football Club will therefore participate in the Promotion play-offs as envisaged in the NSL Handbook read with the Play-off Rules on the dates".

The playoff campaign is due to start on Wednesday with, as it now stands, Platinum Stars scheduled to play against Black Leopards at 15:00.
