Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town's relegation to the National First Division has been overturned by Judge Denise Fisher of the South Gauteng High Court, after she ruled in favour of the club on the Tendai Ndoro saga.

Before announcing her verdict at the courthouse on Monday, Judge Fisher reserved judgement to properly overlook facts and arguments in the matter.

The ruling sets aside the decision of SAFA Arbitrator William Mokhari, who docked the Urban Warriors seven points for fielding Ndoro after the Zimbabwe international represented three different teams in one season.

The Premier Soccer League statement:

The Premier Soccer League has noted the judgement handed down by Judge Fisher in the Johannesburg High Court today.

The relief that was sought from the court was the setting aside of Advocate Mokhari SC’s misconduct award together with orders that Ajax Cape Town should be on the 15th position on the final League table, and that the Promotion Play-offs be set aside.

Judge Fisher set aside Advocate Mokhari’s award but declined to hand down the other relief sought.

It is necessary for the League to properly consider the meaning and effect of the judgement before making any further comment on the matter.

The judgement and advice of the League’s advisors will be considered by the PSL Executive Committee and the appropriate steps will be taken in due course.
