FA DECISION ON 2019/20 SEASON – LEAGUE STATEMENT
Responding to the decision by the FA to end the current season with immediate effect, with all results expunged and no promotion or relegation, the chairman of the Ebac Northern League Glenn Youngman said:
“This will be a huge disappointment to clubs, players and fans across our league.
“Our preferred option was that we should try and finish the current season, but if that was not possible then determine final positions on a points per game basis.
“However, it must have been a very difficult decision for the FA to make and whatever the outcome was, they were never going to keep everyone happy.
“Clubs and players in particular will feel frustrated that months of hard work and commitment will count for nothing. I’d like to thank everyone for all the work they have put in.
“We announced yesterday that we will be waiving membership fees for our clubs for next season and have cancelled the annual dinner. Both these measures will help our clubs meet the bills they are facing in the coming weeks and months.
“We hope everyone connected with the Ebac Northern League stays safe and well.”
