Cinderford To Hold Emergency Meeting After Being Forced To Accept Promotion


Further to the earlier article (link) regarding Evesham's successful appeal against being moved into the Northern League, here's some more information on the matter.

Firstly, here's the latest reshuffle of the leagues:
Evesham United – from NPL Division One South (Step 4) back to Southern League Division One South & West (Step 4)

Cinderford Town – from Southern League Division One South & West (Step 4) to Southern League Premier (Step 3)

Stamford – from NPL Premier (Step 3) back to NPL Division One South (Step 4)

Corby Town – from NPL Premier (Step 3) back to Southern League Premier (Step 3)


After making their appeal to the FA at Wembley, Evesham have today been switched back to the Southern League. The move jeopardised the Robins' season as they were set to lose around £25,000 with the extra travelling involved and few local derbies, like the Hereford game.

As a result of Evesham being reinstated, Cinderford have been forced by the FA to accept promotion - what Cinderford's next move will be is yet to be seen, but the club have called an emergency meeting to take place later today.

After losing their chairman and manager, the Foresters have since appointed Allan Gough and Chris Burns as their new managers and Stuart Tait has been elected as chairman.

Fans have said that the club cannot afford the travelling that is involved with being in the Southern Premier League, and that Evesham were only thinking about the payday that comes when they host Hereford.
