FA Decision Ratified by full FA Council

By Admin ccl

Current season abandoned

The FA put out the following statement yesterday:

"The FA Council has today ratified the decision to conclude the 2019/20 season across Steps 3-7 of the National League System, Tiers 3 to 7 of the women’s football pyramid and the wider grassroots game

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, The FA has been working collaboratively with the leagues within the National League System , the Women’s Football Board, the Women’s Football Conference, and the wider grassroots game to identify the most appropriate way to conclude the 2019/20 season at each level.

The request to end the 2019/20 season was taken to The FA Council by the representatives of the relevant committees having been fully supported by The FA Board.

The FA Council’s vote today was overwhelmingly in favour of ratifying the decision.

It is a disappointing decision for many, expecially for Jersey Bulls who had already won promotion before football was suspended. There was no clear concensus from the CCL as three possible options were more or less equally split between our clubs. Neither did it seem there was any clear concensus within other Step 5/6 leagues.

When and if there is any fresh news it will appear here.

Where next?
