The Premier Soccer League has expelled Herentals from the top-flight just days after the Harare club won an appeal which saw them maintain their league status.

The Students were this time found guilty of breaching PSL statutes by taking football matters to the ordinary courts.

The club approached the High Court when they were charged for influencing the outcome of the game against Black Rhinos. They later withdrew the case and appealed with the Zifa Appeals Committee who ruled in their favour.

But they had already breached the statutes and PSL expelled them for that and also hitting them with a $100 000 fine.

“The PSL Disciplinary Committee expelled Herentals FC from the Premier Soccer League for taking football matters to court,” the League said.

“In addition, the club has been fined One hundred thousand dollars (ZWL $100 000) together with the costs of the hearing . The fine should be paid by 31 March 2020.”

Meanwhile, the League will confirm who takes the vacant spot when the new season starts.
