League Games For The 5th & 8th Postponed

Our league games scheduled for the 5th and 8th of December have now been postponed by the league.

This was after a meeting between the NPL clubs and the NPL League on Wednesday where a vote was taken on restarting the season or not, and a further meeting of the Trident Leagues on Thursday.

Here is the statement that was released yesterday.

The Clubs in membership of the Northern Premier, Southern and Isthmian Leagues (the Trident Leagues) met earlier this week to consider the challenges and issues brought about by the reintroduction of Tiers after the raising of the nationwide lockdown with effect from yesterday.

The clubs were asked to vote on a proposition that the pause in fixtures be continued with a regular review in light of changes to the Tiers and/or grants becoming available. The total votes cast by the 224 Clubs show a substantial number of Clubs in agreement with the proposition. The matter has been considered today and is subject to comment by The FA. A further statement will be issued in due course.
