4 April 2019 – The South African Football Association (SAFA) has noted the outcome of the ABC Motsepe League match between JDR FC v Vaal Professionals which ended 11-1 in favour of JDR FC.
The match took place at Isaak Steyl Stadium, Vaal University of Technology on 30 March 2019.
Having considered a number of factors including:
• The log standings
• The fact that the two teams did not submit any reports as prescribed by the Uniform Rules of the ABC Motsepe League
• The reports of the match officials and the SAFA Provincial Secretary
The Association has resolved that there are enough grounds to suspect foul play regarding the final result.
Therefore, SAFA has issued a directive that the match must be replayed and that the earlier result is null and void.
The two teams have been apprised of this decision and will be informed of the date and venue of the replay in due course.
The Association has intensified its monitoring of the various leagues as they are about to conclude and in this regard, will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that fair play prevails at all times.
