Cape Town All Stars are back to the field after receiving their salaries.

Last week the players boycotted training due to not being paid what they were owed by the team.

The team which is currently sitting on the 12th position on the National First Division league, were in a bad financial situation that they could not afford to top up their electricity meters.

The financial issue has now being resolved with the assistance of the South African Football Players Union (SAFPU).

Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe, SAFPU’s General Secretary, confirmed that the players were paid after stepping in.

“Yes we met up with the players after they made us aware of their problems at Cape Town All Stars,” he said.

“They boycotted training from Tuesday, but after meeting with them we can safely say they got paid,’’ Gaoshubelwe added.
