NPL make North Ferriby statement

Following a court order demanding the liquidation of North Ferriby United, the Northern Premier League have released a statement confirming what action will now be taken. 

The removal of The Villagers from the league will have consequences across the entire table after it was announced that that their entire record this season will be expunged and all of their results this far will be considered null and void.

The league have also confirmed that they will be opening up another relegation spot, with teams finishing in 20th and 21st position facing the prospect of life in Step 4 next season.

The statement read, “Following receipt now of confirmation that North Ferriby United Ltd has been liquidated, the Northern Premier League can confirm that the club’s playing record in the EVO-STIK League Premier Division will be expunged, as per League Rule 12.9 (below) and in accordance with FA regulations.

League Rule 12.9
A club which for any reason ceases to operate at any time during the Playing Season may have its playing record expunged, and any monies due to them from the Company shall be forfeited. From the date of the withdrawal no further payment shall become due to them. From the date of the withdrawal that Club shall cease to be a member of the Company.

The NPL had to await formal notification of the liquidation before it could confirm its position.

Member clubs were updated on the situation at the Chairman’s meeting on Sunday.

The Premier Division league table will be updated to reflect the changes as soon as possible

In terms of the impact on relegation, North Ferriby United will remain as the bottom club in the table. Two further teams, placed 20th and 21st, will also be automatically relegated to step 4″
