Carara relegated, Dynamos back in NFD

Carara Kicks relegated, Dynamos back in National First Division

Posted: 14 August 2012 Time: 10:09 am

The PSL Disciplinary Committee has delivered sanction in the matter involving Dynamos and Carara Kicks, with Kicks being docked 18 points.

Following a complaint by Dynamos, Kicks were found guilty of fielding an improperly registered player, Thembile Taliwe.

In announcing its verdict, the PSL DC ruled that Taliwe had been improperly registered by Kicks as he was registered without a clearance from his previous club, Emfuleni Real Barcelona.

The PSL DC ordered as follows:

  • The points and goals gained by Carara Kicks in the fixtures they won or drew, wherein Taliwe was fielded, be expunged;
  • The registration of Taliwe is nullified;
  • Carara Kicks be allowed to register Taliwe outside the registration window period, provided it complied with all requirements for registration;
  • Carara Kicks is fined R250 000 which is wholly suspended for a period of 12 months on condition that they are not found guilty of a similar offence during the period of suspension;
  • Carara Kicks to pay costs of the DC sitting within 90 days;
  • The conduct of the Carara Kicks club official who facilitated the registration be investigated.


KickOff.com has learnt that Carara Kicks, who finished 10th last season with 38 points, have now been relegated as they will apparently be docked 18 points from matches wherein Taliwe was fielded and Carara got points.

In an attempt to verify the number of points Carara is set to lose, we contacted the PSL's Advocate Ntsietso Mofokeng who delivered the judgement but she referred us to Jonathan Schloss in the football department.

Schloss, though, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment as he is in a meeting.

Dynamos, who finished in 15th place last season with 32 points and therefore relegated, are now back in the NFD following Carara's fate.

About three weeks ago, Bay United were found guilty of fielding an unregistered player following a complaint by Dynamos but got away with a fine of R300 000, with "R200 000 of which suspended for a period of 12 months on condition that Bay are not found guilty of a similar offence during the period of suspension".

The PSL DC found that Bay United didn’t deliberately breach the National Soccer League rules and therefore, there was no need to dock them points.

"In deciding on the sanction, the majority of the panel found that although Bay United had been found guilty of a serious offence, it found that there had been no deliberate breach of the National Soccer League (NSL) Rules, therefore expunging points in the matches that the player played would not be an appropriate sanction."

This Is Unfair, this Malabela guy is fighting very hard to saty in the NFD and as such is doing all these tricks and won. His team is not anything to write home about. This is sickening indeed at the expense of exploiting the law. I wish that he (Dynamos) have a rough season ahead and actually get relegated with Carara Kicks coming back up. However the law is the law. Hard Lcuk Carara (Mokoena), ho tla loka.

While I agree that this is not the nice way for any team to avoid relegation, the verdict is correct as it is consistent with the previous rulings. I was shocked to hear that Carara were found guilty, but will not loose points. That was crazy. Tough luck for Carara, but guys like Malabela should have learnt a lesson few years ago that he cannot run a team like a spaza shop. Mr Malabela, if was you, I would sell or donate the team to someone who knows football. Just focus on your businesses, football is not your career. I wonder how many times the will go through this under yoyr leadership. Uder your leadership, this team will disappear like Real Rovers, Vaal Professionals, Bush Bucks, Michau Worriors, African Wonderers, etc.

Carara must appeal this. Dynamos is appealing against everybody. They appealed against Bay United, now against Carara. They lost on the field of play and were relegated, now using lawyers to stay in NFD at all costs. Wena Pat Malabela, if you paid your players the same way you pay your lawyers and sangomas, you would not need the lawyers and sangomas.

Its not good to hear such unfortunate news about Carara Kicks, questions is did Dynamos lodge an appeal immidiately they found out about the irregularity in registering such player?....I doubt they did! cause the NSL league rules entails that the team wich is has an enquiry about the registration of a player should lodge an appeal to the Lig before such player represents the team. In this regard Dynamos had to lorge an appeal as soon as they heard about the irregularity an Carara Kicks should have signed such appeal from Dynamos immidiately before the player represent Carara Kicks, in that sense the case which is brought by Dynamos would have then be valid. However looking at the situation of the NSL having failed to punish Bay United equally such icident raise questions that Free State teams are treated unequally to their counterparts. Bloem Celtics was once relegated due to such a similar offence, which let to Mr Petrus Molelemela having to sell the team. Tembisa Classic had a similar case they were deducted a point but never penalised into relegation. But however we as the Free State community don`t bekieve we have lost a team in Carara Kicks because such team was established by Mr Mike Mokoena in his son`s name Motabang only to sell it status once it would have been promoted to the PSL. There is no way Carara was ever going to face its sister club FS Stars.

What tricks? So teams should do Spaza businesses in the league and get away with it? He was within his rights to challenge hence he won. Congratulations to Dynamos.

I think there is a lot of inconsistencies in the NFD. Bay United did not loose points fr commiting the same offence: Fielding an improperly registered player. The same crime was committed by the Carara kicks. We see different outcome based due to technicality. They make it appear that the improperly registered player had an advantage over other players. He was giving Carara kicks some advantage because he served as a in-field player, goalie and ref at the same time. Or with him, Carara kicks were playing with 12 players? Shame to give out different sentences for same offence happening in the field of play, unless what happens in the field of play is extended to the board room! NFD must therefore prove that the said player received special attention from the referee, and could play more than 90 minutes and the fouls he committed were not counted since he is not properly registered player! The said player did not even score or contribute to any goal scored by Karara kicks. Aaarggghhh!
