Season will not be extended

The possible extension to the Ryman League season was tonight rejected by the member clubs in an EGM held at Purfleet FC. Hertford Town and Canvey Island proposed a two week extension which was rejected and then the proposal was reduced to one week. This was also rejected by 40 votes to 8 with three clubs not present, so the season will end as planned on 5th May.

It would, subject to more awful weather, be possible to call another EGM to determine an extension, but this requires 21 days notice - ie letter would have to go out this Thursday with the new date for the meeting to be held before the end of the season.

In relation to the question of what would happen if there were still games left over due to bad weather in the first week of May, the rule is the same as always - matches will be rescheduled to be played the next day the pitch is playable, ie Sunday, then Monday, Tuesday etc etc.

The League have agreed to a question from the floor that if a club wishes to play two fixtures in one day it can - leniancy will be applied with regard to 'fielding the strongest side available..."

Games can be switched or played on neutral grounds EXCEPT Promotion and Relegation fixtures which cannot be switched - these can only be played as scheduled or at a neutral venue.
