PSL drop Igesund charge

Johannesburg - The PSL's Disciplinary Committee have dropped their charge of club official misbehaviour against Gordon Igesund after the Moroka Swallows coach reacted angrily towards club officials in March.

Igesund was seen charging at the match referees, making angry accusations, during the Premiership clash against AmaZulu at the Dobsonville Stadium on March 17.

And while the DC had initially charged the four-time PSL title-winning coach, the committee have since withdrawn its case.

Meanwhile, Orlando Pirates have activated a suspended fine of R100 000 following a charge of spectator misbehavior after their supporters invaded the pitch during the Telkom Knockout Final in December last year.

The charge, which was accompanied by a fine of R250 000, wholly suspended for 12 months, activated an earlier suspended fine, which the Buccaneers will now pay into a spectator education fund to be administered by the PSL.
