Scarborough Athletic, Whitby Town and Bridlington Town Football Season Cancelled

Scarborough Athletic, Whitby Town and Bridlington Town Football Season Cancelled

Published by Matthew Pells at 3:41pm 26th March 2020.

The FA has today issued a statement outlining further changes it is making to the football in England as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Bet Victor Northern Premier League, in which both Scarborough Athletic and Whitby Town play, and the Toolstation Northern counties East League, in which Bridlington play, have had their seasons bought to an end and all results expunged. It means there will be no promotion or relegation this season.

"The NLS and the women’s football pyramid were able to build a consensus amongst their leagues and, where possible, aimed to create a consistent approach across all leagues, whilst taking into account the unique characteristics of each individual league.

As a result, The FA and NLS steps three to six have reached a consensus that their 2019-20 season will now be brought to an end, and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between NLS steps three to six, and no promotion to NLS step two.

These decisions will also apply to the leagues and clubs who play at NLS step seven.

We will continue to assist and support the National League (NLS steps one and two) to determine the outcome of its 2019-20 season as quickly as possible. The planned implementation of the restructure of the NLS will also now be deferred until the start of the 2021-22 season."

In addition the FA have decided to end the grass-roots season as well.

Furthermore, we can now confirm that we have decided that all grassroots football is concluded for the 2019-20 season. This will allow the game to move forward and to commence planning for next season. Our County Football Associations (CFAs) will be supporting grassroots leagues over the coming days to determine how they should close out their current competitions.
