SULOM directed Dedza alongside Wizard and Airborne Rangers should go for playoffs despite that the aggrieved team finished on position 12.

The decision did not go down well with the rookies who sought a court injunction in the middle of the playoffs.

But after a protracted legal battle the High Court offered temporary relief to SULOM by faulting Dedza for not respecting the decision.

But the court faulted SULOM for outright failing to offer them a platform to be heard.

SULOM Appeals committee found Dedza guilty last and recommended for them to participate in the playoffs but they have made it clear that they would not contest it in court.

Dedza Young Soccer General Secretary Harold Mmora said: “We have decided to withdraw the injunction and we will also not participate in the playoffs.

“It’s up to the High Court to make a decision but we feel that justice has not been done.”

Meanwhile, SULOM which is still in dilemma over the withdrawal of Chilumba Barracks after their promotion into the top league has said it will exercise its powers to resolve the playoffs issue.

Wizard beat Airborne Rangers in the first game of the playoffs before Dedza sought vourt order restraining SULOM from holding playoffs.

    # 1 Absalomchiwanda you are just exposing your ignorance here -what do you mean mudziko limodzi mumakhala ma Soccer Governing Bodies awiri. You mean you don’t know that SULOM , Southern Region League, Simama Northern League, Central Region League are Soccer Governing Entities in their own right? FAM is a mother Body and all these Soccer Governing Bodies are affiliates of FAM just like FAM is an affiliate of FIFA.And just to give you a further lesson on what you are saying -The English Premier League(EPL) is also a Soccer Governing Body in England and is a affiliated to the English FA just like Premier Soccer League(PSL) in RSA is a soccer Governing body for the Premier League in RSA but affiliated to SAFA and so on and so forth. Don’t say things you don’t know the first thing about.
