Club Statement: Outcome of League Charges
Update from Chief Executive Josh Greaves.
I can confirm that the club received notification yesterday afternoon from the National League that we had been charged with breach of League Rule 8.39 in relation to the non-fulfilment of three National League North Fixtures in February 2021.
We have been charged a £1400.00 fine per fixture, totalling £4200.00, and a suspended two points per game deduction, totalling six points, on the 2021/22 season. There has been a 30% deduction on the fine per match due to the club accepting the charges.
The Club and I were expecting these fines, but must say not to the extent that we have been charged. The decision to not fulfil these fixtures was not an easy choice for myself and the board, however, it was a decision that we stand by.
We will make no further comment on the matter at this time, however, will update you should anything change.
