Court rules in favour of Ajax in Ndoro case

Phakaaathi Reporter

South Gauteng judge Denise Fisher has ruled in favour of Ajax Cape Town and set aside the ruling by arbitrator William Mokhari to dock points from the Urban Warriors.

The ruling means Ajax have officially been reinstated in the Absa Premiership, with the results of the promotion/relegation play-offs now invalid.

Judge Fisher also referred the matter to FIFA Player Status Committe to make a ruling on Ndoro’s status.

As things stand, Ajax returns to 15th spot in the Absa Premiership, while AmaZulu regain their eighth spot at the expense of SuperSport United.

It’s not clear at this stage if the Premier Soccer League will appeal the ruling or not.

Efforts to get a comment from the League proved fruitless.
