Statement: GAME OFF!

March 13, 2020

The decision has now been made to call off tomorrow’s game by NCEL. Full statement below:

After careful consideration the Management board of the NCEL has decided to postpone all scheduled Premier Division, Division One and League Cup matches with immediate effect. 
This decision has not been taken lightly but the health and well-being of all of our players, team officials, volunteers and supporters is of paramount importance.
The Board will continue to monitor the Coronavirus situation whilst taking advice from the Government and the FA and will issue further updates as necessary. A date for the resumption of fixtures will be announced as soon as it is considered safe to do so.
We hope everyone will understand the reasoning behind this decision and thank you for your co-operation

    ….. and yet in Scotland, where there are more cases than in North Yorkshire, the ban is not effective until Monday and for crowds of 500 or more. If you check all the teams in our league and the top league nobody reaches 500 on a regular basis. This season could go into Summer quite easily, – disappointed!.

    ….. Perhaps we should backdate to last week’s match against Winterton Rangers lol and void the result.

    I bet they still won’t extend the season!

    May decide to go to Tadcaster v Workington at 15.00pm,as I currently understand they are still playing.

    Kick off 2.00pm, good game 1-1,Good crowd, would guess 350plus.

    Final result Tadcaster 2- Workington 4,good game and on balance, correct result, although Taddy centre forward made a monumental mistake trying to walk the ball into the net, and allowed the defender to tackle him. Oops!, both teams seemed to have time to play the ball, and nice 1-2 touches. Worth the journey
