PSL's DC on the warpath

Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League's Disciplinary Committee have been hard at work over the past few weeks, with no fewer than four top-flight teams facing several charges.

Moroka Swallows have landed themselves in the deepest pot of hot water, with both the club and coach Gordon Igesund facing separate disciplinary charges.

Igesund was alleged to have confronted match officials "in an aggressive manner" following the full-time whistle in the PSL clash against AmaZulu on 17 March 2012 - a direct contrast of Rules 53.2.5.6, 52.2.5.7 and 53.2.5.9 of the National Soccer League Rules.

The Dube Birds, meanwhile, pleaded guilty to charges of spectator misbehavior, with the crowd disturbance apparently being triggered by Igesund's own outbursts.

Swallows have since been fined R100 000, wholly suspended for 12 months, while the club is to deliver a written apology to the PSL and affected match officials, while the letter must also appear on the club's official website, as well as the league's.

Meanwhile, Orlando Pirates have been charged with contravention of Rule 10.1 and failure to comply with the Kit Manual during their clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on 20 March 2012 when they failed to appear in the change room sixty (60) minutes before kick-off time (which was 19:30) and only arrived at the change room at 18h40.

Black Leopards also find themselves facing the music, with the club charged with failure to comply with the Media Manual after it was alleged in their match against Platinum Stars FC on 18 March 2012 that they failed to submit the provisional team sheet at the match meeting.

Earlier this week it was confirmed Bloemfontein Celtic were fined R100 000, wholly suspended for 12 months, after they pleaded guilty to charges of spectator misbehavior after their supporters threw projectiles on the field during their clash against Platinum Stars on 26 February 2012.
