Today we have learned of the FA’s decision that the National League in which we compete at Step 5 should be ended with immediate effect and that all results will be expunged meaning no promotion or relegation
This is very cruel on Shildon AFC as I firmly believe we would have gone onto win promotion and go into play at a level the Club has never played at before.
As Chairman I’m absolutely devastated by this news but I’m more concerned for everyone else associated with the Club, our volunteers, supporters, sponsors and not least of all our Management Team and Players who have been absolutely outstanding all season and I feel deserved so much better than today’s decision
We have invested heavily this season, in terms of money but also in time and effort which has all been wasted. Now is not the time to make decisions on what happens next, it’s the time to thank everyone for your support and superb efforts throughout the course of a season in which we were 80% through and 10 points ahead of 4th. Let’s not forget those facts!!
There are bigger problems that we are currently facing at the moment so please stay safe and take care
