Mitre Cup

It is with regret that the Barkston Ash Council has taken the step to cancel this season's  Mitre Cup which would normally start in the last week of July due to the ongoing Covid-19 out break.

 

THE FA HAS ISSUED GUIDANCE TO ALL GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL AND INFORMAL FOOTBALL ACTIVITY OUTSIDE THE PROFESSIONAL GAME

Season 2019-20 Coronavirus Statement 

I hope you are all keeping safe and well in these unprecedented and uncertain times. It is important that the whole football family stays healthy and fit in order that everyone can resume normal activities as soon as it safe to do so. These are words I thought I would never hear myself say, but it turns out Bill Shankly was wrong, life and death (and health and well-being) is actually more important than football. 

The District Association has received the same advice and information from the Football Association as County FA’s and all Leagues step 3 football and below, including grassroots football. The advice is that the 2019/20 season is to be declared null and void and all results expunged. This means; for leagues there will be no promotion or relegation, and for County and District FA’s, such as ourselves, no cup winners. 

As we are at the stage of just needing to hold our finals, a question has been asked if we are able to hold our finals prior to the start of the 2020/21 season?

If, and I suspect they will, the FA Council ratify the cancellation of this season, this will mean that all sanctioned competitions will be void. Therefore, any football played under the auspices of season 2019/20 could be classified ‘unsanctioned football’ and could leave clubs, leagues and District FA’s liable to FA sanction for playing/organising unsanctioned football. 

Even if we are able to do so, there would be problems finding available venues in June and July. August would impact on the ‘holiday season,’ which leaves us with September when all leagues would be starting their 2020/21 programmes. It is important to the District FA that we maintain good relationships with Leagues, in order to secure the release of clubs and referees on ‘conference weekends’ to play our competitions throughout the season.  

Add to this the implications for our age group related junior cup finals, U12’s who currently play 9v9 football would then be deemed as U13’s and play 11v11. U14’s become U15’s and U16’s become U17’s. 

Therefore, it is with great regret that the Barkston Ash FA council has taken the difficult decision not to proceed with or re-arrange the 2019/20 cup finals. 

We realise that will be disappointing to the clubs that had reached our finals, but we are aware that Clubs have not been able to operate normally since the suspension of all football and that this may have had an impact on club finances. Therefore, we would like to offer all Barkston Ash FA clubs FREE entry our 2020/21 competitions:

·       Challenge Cup,
JB Plows Cup,
 BML Sports Cup,
 Junior Cup (U16/15’s),
 Deighton Shield (U14/13’s)
 BML Junior Cup (U12) 

We have not made any decision about the 2020 Mitre Cup (formally Prostar and Temple Newsam Cup), normally played late July – early August as a pre-season competition. We would normally make these arrangements around the time of the Annual General Meeting. 

Which brings me to the AGM, originally planned for the 2nd June, we are awaiting FA guidance on how best to conduct this meeting, this may include holding this meeting by video conference call. However, the District secretary, Brian Coutts will be in touch when we know more details. 

May I take this opportunity to thank you all for continuing to support the Barkston Ash FA, during this difficult time and I look forward to seeing you all back playing football fit, healthy, safe and well next season.

 Yours in football (and isolation!!)

President, Barkston Ash FA
