United's keeper Gilstrap doesn't pitch at disciplinary hearing

2009-02-25 00:00

MARITZBURG United’s disciplinary hearing against goalkeeper Hunter Gilstrap yesterday could not be held because the player did not show up to the meeting with the club owners, and could not be located or contacted.

Gilstrap was to be brought before a DC because the club felt the goalkeeper had not made the required effort in relegation-threatened United’s 5-2 Premier Soccer League thrashing at the hands of Lamontville Golden Arrows on Saturday, and for showing the middle finger to United fans on leaving the field.

“The DC could not be held because Hunter did not arrive and could not be located,” United chairman Farouk Kadodia said yesterday.

“We will try to locate Hunter and hold the DC tomorrow [today].”

Gilstrap has one-and-a-half years left on his contract, but United have indicated their desire to part ways mutually with the keeper.
