Evesham United Moved To Northern League


As a result of Cinderford Town refusing promotion from the Southern League Division 1 South and West, Evesham United have be moved into the Northern Premier League Division One South.

Evesham would have been the closest away game for Hereford should Cinderford have accepted promotion. 

"It's a kick in the teeth for the club and I find it hard to accept that we are paying for another club's misfortune," Evesham manager Paul Collicutt told the Gloucester Citizen.

"We have been told by the FA that there will only be 40-50 extra miles of travelling, but we are missing out on a potential sell out against Hereford and a lot of other local derby matches.

"We had already planned for the season ahead and now it's all going to be new for us.

"We have 14 days to appeal the decision so we will see what happens next."

In a statement, the Southern League has explained the changes:

Cinderford Town FC are to be allocated to the Southern League Division One South & West (Step 4).

Corby Town FC will be laterally moved at Step 3 from the Northern Premier League to the Southern League.

Stamford AFC will be reprieved and be allocated to Northern Premier League Premier (Step 3).

Evesham United FC will be laterally moved at Step 4 from the Southern League Division One South & West to the Northern Premier League Division One South.
