Firstly, may I take this opportunity to thank every club and committee member that registered their votes for the conclusion of the 2019/20 football season and cup competitions.
The turnout from 152 club & committee members was 61.8% (94 votes) and therefore all votes have now been counted and verified by the two independent adjudicators, Gary Leake (Kingshurst) & Ant Hasker (Solihull Moors)
Please find results below
Competitions are brought to an immediate end with results expunged (i.e. without promotion or relegation occurring)
League positions, promotions and relegation are resolved by a points per game calculation on the proviso that a minimum of 50% of fixtures have been played by any team in any respective division.
The conclusion of the 2019/20 Cup Competitions
All cup competitions null and voided
Attempt if logistically possible to play all League, Cup/Trophy/Vase/Shield cups to completion and null & void all Open Cup Competitions for all age groups
Both the divisional and cup competitions have been declared null and void in their entirety for the 2019/20 football season.
The league had already purchased the medals and plaques for the 2019/20 season before the COVID-19 pandemic crisis set-in and as Option 1 in both categories has been confirmed.
We will use the savings from the 2020/21 season from the none purchase of any further medals to reduce the 2020/21 league fees proportionally for each club (This will not be applicable to new clubs).
The league has already set the league fees for the 2020/21 season at £50:00 per team as part of the 50th year anniversary celebrations and there will now be a further reduction in the overall league fees.
The league will take into consideration the cost savings to the clubs from the above and notify all club secretaries within 7-days of the new “League Registration Fees” for the 2020/21 season.
Through these challenging times the league members, along with the committee members have reached this difficult decision and have given the league the mandate to null and void the 2019/20 season forthwith.
Thank you all for your cooperation and I trust you all stay safe during this unprecedented period and all the committee members look forward to working with you all, at the start of the new season (as and when this occurs?) .
General League Secretary
