National League Statement: Board Update

We are still taking stock of the situation following the results of the votes on the National League resolutions, which have decided that the National League can carry on, but the North and South have to stop.

We have been quite open in our opinion that we all play in the National League and should be treated as one league.

The result, in simple terms, was that out of 64 member clubs,  40 voted to carry on and 24 wanted the season to end.

This just goes to show that the league rules are flawed,  where a vast minority of clubs can defeat the majority  opinion.

We have a board meeting on Monday evening to discuss the ramifications of this decision and we will update you on the way forward next week.

Steve Irving

Co-Chairman
