Bay United found guilty
The Premier Soccer League DC on Monday made its ruling on the case involving Dynamos and Bay United.
Following a complaint by Dynamos, Bay United was charged with fielding an unregistered player.
The members of the PSL DC unanimously agreed that the complainant, Dynamos, convinced the DC that the player in question who was registered by Bay United under the name and identification document of Realeboga Bolly Matlou, and played for Bay United 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 tomorrow morning, Tuesday 24 July 2012 to make submissions on mitigation and aggravation for sanction.
At least four matches could be affected, and pending the decision and subsequent punishment, one of the two sides will be relegated from the National First Division.
Dynamos finished second from last and are hinging their hopes of survival on the decision. They will be hoping to be see Bay United lose points gained from the matches in which they allegedly use the improperly registered player taken off their tally.
Dynamos finish on 32 points, three less than Bay United, who finished 11th with 35 points.
If Bay United are punished by having points taken away, they will drop into the bottom two and tumble out of the NFD. Both Bay United and Dynamos both previously played in the Premier Soccer League.
