Only 7 clubs meet registration deadline

Only 7 clubs meet registration deadline

MASERU – Econet Premier League giants Bantu, Lioli and Matlama could be docked points ahead of the new league season.
According to the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC), the deadline for club registrations was yesterday and only seven out of the 14 premier league teams fulfilled the requirements.
The seven clubs that passed are Liphakoe, Likhopo, Majantja, Kick4Life, Lesotho Defence Force (LDF), Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) and Sefotha-fotha.
The remaining seven are on provisional licensing and will be given until a certain date to fulfill the requirements.

Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) spokesperson Lekholoa Mosito said if the clubs still fail to comply after the set date they will be deducted points.
The new deadline is yet to be announced.
The majority of A-Division teams, meanwhile, passed.

And although a new date for teams on provisional licenses is yet to be set, A-Division Management Committee spokesperson Mothusi Letsie hinted that all teams could be given another month to complete the licensing.

“There are teams that are expected to submit some documents, they submitted their licenses but had to go back because they did not qualify,” Letsie said.
“We have not yet set a deadline for teams that did not pass registration but as soon as we do every team that will fail to comply will face points deduction,” he said.
Last year Linare were docked three points after they completed their registration late.

‘Tse Tala’ are again on this year’s wanted list.
Other Premier League teams that are on provisional licences are Swallows, Lioli, Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS), Bantu, Matlama and Galaxy. The registration for players, meanwhile, continues. The deadline is at the end of this month with the league season set to begin on September 8, later than usual to allow clubs to complete registrations.
