SHABANIE Mine will part with $8000 after a Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee found them guilty of causing the abandonment of their match against Harare City at Maglas Stadium on May 12.

Shabanie were down 3-1 at that time, and the match has now been confirmed as Harare City’s on a 3-0 score-line.

Part of the report from the disciplinary committee, which sat on Tuesday in Harare, reads: “It is clear that the violence led to the abandonment of the match

“Such irreprehensible conduct cannot be tolerated. Clubs and their supporters must learn that the referee`s decision is final. There are other channels of airing grievances without resorting to violence.

“This must be nipped in the bud to protect life and limb, and even the sponsors. We are guided by the PSL standing orders in arriving at the appropriate sentence.

According to the referee’s report trouble started in the 80th minute when the second assistant official flagged for an offside offence and I blew the whistle to rule off the goal.

“This did not go down well with the home team fans who started pelting the second Assistant Referee with missiles (beer cans, plastic water bottles and stones), I then stopped the match for eleven minutes to allow the Police details to bring order and sanity and to assure the
security,” the referee said.

“The match resumed after the Police assured me that it was safe to do so but barely a minute played after the resumption, the fans started throwing the missiles this time targeted at Harare City
goalkeeper who had to scurry to the middle of the pitch for safety.

“I had to stop the match again for five (5) minutes. Even the intervention of the Shabanie Mine team management did not help things as they were also pelted with missiles.

“After ascertaining that the situation was no longer safe for a football match to continue, I then called off the match after 81 minutes of play. The home team was also locked in their dressing room as angry fans bayed for their blood. We left the stadium at 18:10 hours under Police escort.”

Luke Masomere’s side were found guilty of contravening at least two sections of the PSL Rules and regulations which attract a fine of $8000, according to the league’s standing orders agreed to by all clubs at the beginning of the season.


They will also foot the costs of the hearing. The committee which comprises Don Moyo, Vusi Vuma and Brighton Mudzamiri, had fined hem $10 000, but suspended $2000 on condition that such violence, involving the club, does not occur again before the end of the season.
