The FA have today announced that the 2019/20 season is to be considered null and void with no promotion or relegation for all leagues at steps 3-6 of the National League System (SCFL Division One is Step 6).
As a Club, whatever the outcome, our position would have remained relatively unaffected. We are on the back of three challenging seasons, but we are delighted to now be back on the right tracks and heading in the right direction again. This season we were on course to meet our pre-season objective, which was to stabilise and secure a mid-table finish.
This is in no small part down to the hard work and dedication of our small team of volunteers, and our management teams. Our particular thanks to Danny Wood who has come in and impressed us all with his hard work and commitment to the cause. Our thanks also go to, of course, all the managers, coaches and players across our three senior teams at the Club, who have supported Danny fantastically and contributed to a great atmosphere around the place.
A huge thank you to our amazing sponsors, Saywell International in particular, for their continued support.
It now remains to be seen whether the new season will commence at the beginning of August as usual, or not, and indeed when it will be possible to commence pre-season training. There are great unknowns at present of course, but we look forward to the future with optimism.
Stay safe everyone and we hope to welcoming you back to Lyons Way again in the fullness of time,
