BAY United might find themselves playing in the country’ second division (formerly known as the Vodacom League next season.
This after the club was yesterday found guilty by the Premier Soccer League’s DC for fielding unregistered player after relegated Dynamos who are United’s cross-town neighbours in the Limpopo province lodged a complaint.
The members of the PSL DC unanimously agreed that the complainant, Dynamos, convinced
the DC that the player in question who was registered by United under the name and identification document of Realeboga Bolly Matlou, and played for the club in National First Division league fixtures, was not Realeboga Bolly Matlou. Therefore, Bay United was found guilty of fielding an unregistered player.
The parties have until today to make submissions on mitigation and aggravation for sanction, and should points be deducted from United, then Dynamos will retain their NFD status while United go down to the lower division.
The PSL has also charged Orlando Pirates with spectator misbehaviour and unsporting behavior.
Pirates were scheduled to appear before the PSL DC this week but they have requested that the case be postponed.
It is alleged that on May 19, in their league match against Lamontville Golden Arrows at Moses Mabida Stadium, Pirates supporters behaved in an unruly or unsporting manner in that after the fulltime whistle, they invaded the pitch which is a demarcated area.
