Boycott poses threat to PSL programme

PREMIER Soccer League (PSL) elections postponed twice so far and now scheduled for next month could be thrown into disarray as some clubs are believed to be planning a boycott.

IndependentSport heard this week that a group of six clubs that includes giants Dynamos, Caps United and Highlanders is plotting to boycott the elections to choose the chairman, secretary general and treasurer for the league.

The elections have been postponed because clubs couldn’t agree on constitutional matters.

Some clubs are calling for a management board structure that comprises a chief executive officer while others are resisting the suggestion.

Zifa chairman Rafiq Khan last week said the elections would definitely be held next month and even declared that he would be the retaining officer.

Khan dismissed the standoff within the top-flight league as a “minor” issue which he is determined to solve come next month.

“There are a lot of grey areas and a number of clubs are not happy. Our position so far is the elections can not be held under this environment,” said a highly-placed source that spoke to this paper on condition of anonymity.

The PSL programme is currently underway and sources raised fears of serious disruptions over the impending impasse over the elections.

Acting chairman Tendai Madzorera has submitted his bid for the hot seat against current treasurer Joseph Goromonzi, Black Rhinos’ Justin Mujaji and former league seretary general Leslie Gwindi.

Caps United’s former secretary Wellington Chando is tipped to land the league’s secretary general position ahead of Kambuzuma United’s Saidi Sangula and Harday Mandava of Eiffel Flats.

Results of PSL matches played yesterday:

Dynamos 3, Kwekwe Cables 0, Amazulu 0, Railstars 1.
