The Trident Leagues of the Northern Premier League, Southern League and Isthmian League have this evening issued the following statement regarding the return of football under the new tier guidance brought in following the most recent national lockdown.
“The Clubs in membership of the Northern Premier, Southern and Isthmian Leagues (the Trident Leagues) met earlier this week to consider the challenges and issues brought about by the reintroduction of Tiers after the raising of the nationwide lockdown with effect from yesterday.
The clubs were asked to vote on a proposition that the pause in fixtures be continued with a regular review in light of changes to the Tiers and/or grants becoming available.
The total votes cast by the 224 Clubs show a substantial number of Clubs in agreement with the proposition.
The matter has been considered today and is subject to comment by The FA.
A further statement will be issued in due course.”
