More news, no ads


The waiting game to find out what is happening with the future of their seasons
continues for Wisbech Town and Fenland’s two Eastern Counties League sides.

The Fenmen – along with March Town and Wisbech St Mary – were asked to cast their opinions about what happens next to their current campaigns that are suspended due to the third national lockdown.

Clubs were asked to state their preferred option on how the season should finish, but the latest announcement from the Football Association says that the sport’s ruling body is awaiting further updates from the Government before revealing any outcome.

A statement said: “The National League system team wish to provide the following update to clubs in relation to the potential continuation or curtailment of the 2020/21 season at steps three to six of the National League system.

“The Alliance Committee (steps three and four) and leagues committee (steps five and six) met on February 8 and 9 respectively to discuss the data that was collated following the recent surveys circulated to clubs at this level of the game.

“During discussions, the committees acknowledged the likelihood that the Prime Minster will set out a roadmap to the nation on February 22 as to how Government intend to begin to reduce the current coronavirus restrictions.

“Given that any such update from the Government may provide the committees with additional, relevant information to help determine the preferred route forward, they have agreed to reconvene after this date.

“In addition, the Alliance Committee are also conscious of the ongoing process the National League (steps one and two) are undertaking and the impact this could have on any actions the committee may choose to take.”

Wisbech have been on the sidelines since October 24, while Wisbech St Mary last played on December 12 and March on December 19.
