The FA released the following statement on this season’s Womens Football today:

“The FA, FA Women’s Board members and the Women’s Football Conference have consulted and reached a consensus regarding the women’s football pyramid.

The FA and the leagues within tiers three to seven have reached a consensus to bring the season to an immediate end and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between tiers three to seven. Agreement has also been reached to end the Regional Talent Clubs season, which was due to conclude in April 2020.

We remain in consultation with the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship Board and clubs regarding the most appropriate way to complete the current season, including for the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Academy”.

Whilst we are naturally disappointed that the girls inaugural season should end in this way we are sure it is the correct decision.

It has been an absolute pleasure sponsoring the girls this season and watching the project go from strength to strength. We would like to congratulate every single player who has worn the quarters; topping both leagues and reaching two cup semi-finals, as a fledgling club, is no mean achievement. We would also like to pay tribute to the part played by Nathan, Mavis and Abbie; their coaching and planning has been pivotal in the girls success.
