A letter from 64 clubs has been sent to The FA questioning and urging a reconsideration of last week’s decision to void the season at Step 3-6 of non-league and various levels of the women’s game.

The letter, which also states that the clubs all agreed with the decision to suspend play for the time being, is signed by clubs including South Shields, Halesowen Town, Worthing, Gainsborough Trinity, Hastings United, Workington, Truro City, and some clubs from the women’s football pyramid.

Shared by South Shields on Twitter, the letter includes the following: “In writing this joint letter, we recognise that the decision to expunge results for the 2019/20 season still pends official ratification from the FA Council. However, we believe it is unacceptable that such a decision has been handed down to us in this manner.

“We urgently seek constructive dialogue with the FA with the aim to have the decision re-considered.”

It also states: “We urge the FA to reconsider its decision and to slow down the whole process, offering proper consultation with afflicted leagues and clubs as the picture becomes clearer, before deciding a way forward.”
