Heaton Stannington – 2020/21 Season Statement

The Heaton Stannington committee and management team have tonight met to review & discuss the FA Survey, issued on 15 January to Step 5 & 6 clubs, regarding the outcome of the 2020-21 season. We have considered a range of factors including the health & safety of our players/volunteers/supporters, the commercial impact and the wider impact on the game.

We have made the decision to vote for the 2020/21 to be declared null & void, with a new season to begin in August 2021. At this time, we feel the priority for everyone should be focusing on overcoming this devastating pandemic as soon as possible.

We all desperately miss football, miss the buzz of match day at Grounsell Park and miss socialising with our friends. We look forward to being able to welcome you all back safely at the right time.

Until then – stay safe.
