North Ferriby United’s appeal against the Evo-Stik League’s decision to turn down a relocation to Dunswell Park was adjourned at Wembley on Monday.
Last month, the Evo-Stik League announced that an application to relocate the club and also change the playing name to East Hull was rejected by the league. The club’s statement goes on to say the following:
The club say that the hearing was due to start at 12.30, but due to the over-running of a previous case, the start was delayed to 2.30. The Tribunal Chairman then stated that the hearing would have to be adjourned due to an administrative error on the part of the FA for which they take responsibility.
NFU, the Northern Premier League and other interested parties all made their submissions but it appears that not all of those were provided to the Tribunal members. This was realised at the last minute so the tribunal was left with no option other than to adjourn the hearing in order to allow them time to read and conside rall the material prior to taking the oral evidence.
Unfortunate as it is, this was the only option available to the tribunal on Monday.
No date has yet been set for the hearing to re-convene.
