Clubs in Leagues One and Two have now met by division to determine the outcome of the 1919/20 season.
The Championship Clubs restart their season on 20th June and the FL Chairman, Rick Parry, said, “Whilst it has always remained the Board’s position to play the remainder of the season where possible, the decision reached at today’s meeting follows a full and considered consultation period with our member Clubs. The Board has endeavoured to listen to all views and alternative approaches but understands that the decisions taken will not be met with universal satisfaction from all Clubs. Today’s outcome ensures that the League and its Clubs remains as faithful as possible to the previously agreed Regulations and that there is consistency in the approach adopted across the FL in all divisions if required. It is clear that the challenges facing the League from the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic are unprecedented and I thank the contribution of FL Clubs in making this important determination.”
