On Monday 15th March The FA Women’s Football Board decided to curtail the 2020/21 season with immediate effect.
The season concludes with Bob Wilkinson's side having played six competitive fixtures in total, two in the FA Cup and four in the league, winning three, drawing two and winning one.
An FA statement read - The FA Women’s Football Board has now considered the feedback submitted by leagues and clubs as part of the Tiers 3-6 Club Survey, the Grassroots Survey and recommendations of the Women’s Football Conference, in addition to the information set out in the Government’s recent roadmap.
We would like to thank clubs and leagues for submitting their views and the time taken in providing responses during what we appreciate is an incredibly challenging period for everyone.
The Women’s Football Board has made the following decisions, which are subject to approval by the FA Board and/or FA Council as appropriate:
- The 2020-21 Season for tiers 3-6 of the Women’s Football Pyramid will be curtailed with immediate effect and declared incomplete, with no further league fixtures taking place this season. There will also be no promotion and relegation between these tiers for the 2020-21 season, including no promotion from tier 3 into tier 2 and no relegation from tier 6 into tier 7. A recommendation for an alternative club movement process is included below.
