2016-03-09 06:00

THE Referees’ Review Committee, citing poor performance, has sanctioned several top officials in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) and National First Division (NFD).

The committee was unanimous that the new match officials’ disciplinary code stipulates that acts of poor performance that have been committed through blatant refereeing mistakes by not interpreting the laws of the games correctly, must be sanctioned.

  • After going through all recorded matches, the following decisions were reached: In the match, Kaizer Chiefs vs Bidvest Wits (19 December 2015), assistant referee Johannes Moshidi will not be appointed for National Soccer League (NSL) matches for six weeks. He will also forfeit his stipend for a period of one month.) Referee Phillip Tinyane will also be missing from action for a period of four weeks after the clash Wits vs Platinum Stars (3 February).) After the Free State Stars vs Bloemfontein Celtic (31 January) encounter and the clash Kaizer Chiefs vs Mamelodi Sundowns (9 January), assistant referee Sandile Dilikane will not be eligible for appointments for the NSL matches for four weeks and will forfeit his stipend for one month.) Referee Daniel Volgraaff will have his fitness reassessed before he can be allowed back on the field.

Other referees and match commissioners involved in acts of poor performance are Victor Hlungwani, Clifford Motaung, Kulasande Qongqo and George Boodhoo. The sanctions are with immediate effect.
