SOUTH­ERN Re­gion Women’s Foot­ball side Cow­dray Park Queens have been docked points for field­ing an in­el­i­gi­ble player.

Cow­dray Park Queens fielded Cather­ine Jongwe, who was not on the team card, in their game against High­landers Roy­als on July 16. The match of­fi­cials only no­ticed the anom­aly in the sec­ond half when Jongwe was be­ing sub­sti­tuted.

“We re­ceived a re­port that Cow­dray Park Queens fielded an in­el­i­gi­ble player in a match which they won 2-1 against High­landers Roy­als on July 16. Such be­hav­iour is un­ac­cept­able in the world of foot­ball be­cause it paints a bad im­age of our league,” said South­ern Re­gion Women’s League chair­per­son Takundwa Chimundiya.

“Any team which might want to do a sim­i­lar stance should think twice be­cause we won’t take such is­sues lightly.”

Chimundiya said Cow­dray Park had been sum­moned for a hear­ing but did not show up.
