A terrible appointment, put a bit of publicity over getting someone with a clue. Too late now- they are relying on the AGM Cup for any hope of staving off relegation.

It's all on Platten and the committee. It's been one balls up after another, since Alun Armstrong was allowed to leave.

Clark started out really well in his early managerial career.

Likes to drink the most though apparently.

He’s a canny bloke though and was a canny player who never quite become as good as he potentially showed he could have when he first come through.

Hearing that Farsley Celtic may be relegated owing to ground grading issues so Blyth may be saved, but this is hope rather than expectation now.

Bali Mumba has joined South Shields on loan. Some coup that.

If that happens, Blyth should thank their lucky stars.

Blyth are confident that they’ll stay up regardless because of those ground issues. I’d heard that Clark was in the running for the NUFC U23 job but pulled out as they couldn’t match the money he was on at Blyth (very reliable source). Not sure how that all fits together but there you go.

So, they peddled Armstrong and 90% of last seasons squad, to fetch in Clark and hope for some kind of miracle. Incompetent doesn't cover it.

Armstrong left of his own accord- despite being under contract- and as a parting gift he decided not to activate the contract options on a host of players, some of whom he them scooped up in his new role at Darlo.

He left because he knew Platten and the committee were planning a huge budget cut. All of Armstrong's good work was undone during the summer.

The cut in the budget doesn't excuse his behaviour. He absolutely shafted the club.

Look, I disagree with a lot of things the board have done over the years. There is desperate need for new blood in the boardroom. But it's simply unfair to criticise someone for refusing to pile any more cash into the club after already putting in half a million.

Consett through time the Vase semi winning 3-1 aet. Sounds like sections of the Atherstone fans were a bit ‘spicy’. Anyway, still on for a Hebburn-Consett final.

Step 3&4 also want to end now (unanimous amongst the leagues). National League (Step 1&2) have said nothing yet. Not sure how they can plumb it into League 2 though. Maybe just only promote one side from the National on a PPG basis?

God knows pal.

It'll be a pisser for Hebburn because I think it'll mean no promotion and no possible (probable with the draw) Vase Final at Wemberlee  :rant:

FA competitions
With the 2019-20 Emirates FA Cup, Women’s FA Cup, Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase all at advanced stages, we are reviewing all options as we seek to complete these competitions whenever it is safe and appropriate to do so. Clubs involved are close to reaching a major final and for those clubs and supporters we will do all we can to keep the Wembley dream alive.

Full email if anyone is interested

ANNOUNCEMENT READS:
The Football Association [The FA] has been working collaboratively with the National League System [NLS], the Women’s Football Pyramid and the wider grassroots game since the outbreak of COVID-19 on how to conclude the 2019/20 season in the most appropriate way possible.

These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game and in consultation across key stakeholders. Our primary concern will always be for the safety and welfare of clubs, players, staff, officials, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time.

Today’s steps take into account the financial impact during this uncertain period, whilst considering the fairest method on how the sporting outcomes for the season will be decided, with the integrity of the Leagues in mind.

The NLS and the Women’s Football Pyramid were able to build a consensus amongst their leagues and, where possible, aimed to create a consistent approach across all leagues, whilst taking into account the unique characteristics of each individual league.

As a result, The FA and NLS Steps 3 to 6 have reached a consensus that their 2019/20 season will now be brought to an end, and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between NLS Steps 3 to 6, and no promotion to NLS Step 2. 

These decisions will also apply to the Leagues and clubs who play at NLS Step 7.

The National League [NLS Steps 1 and 2] have agreed that they want to attempt to complete the competition in line with the Premier League, EFL and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and Emirates FA Cup and are therefore seeking permission from The FA that the season for this level will be extended beyond 1 June 2020 indefinitely.

The planned implementation of the restructure of the NLS will also now be deferred until the start of the 2021/22 season.

Furthermore, we can now confirm that The FA has decided that all grassroots football is concluded for the 2019/20 season. This will allow the game to move forward and to commence planning for next season. Our County Football Associations [CFAs] will be supporting grassroots leagues over the coming days to determine how they should close out their current competitions.

Where appropriate, the above decisions will be put to The FA Council for ratification.

Throughout this period The FA continues to seek guidance in respect of the Government’s financial support packages relative to COVID-19 and how they are applicable to clubs in the NLS, the Women’s Football Pyramid and the wider grassroots game.

WOMEN’S FOOTBALL

In the women’s game, The FA, FA Women’s Board members and the Women’s Football Conference have consulted and reached a consensus regarding the Women’s Football Pyramid.

The FA and the Leagues within Tiers 3 to 7 have reached a consensus to bring the season to an immediate end and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between Tiers 3 to 7. Agreement has also been reached to end the Regional Talent Clubs season, which was due to conclude in April 2020.

We remain in consultation with the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship Board and clubs regarding the most appropriate way to complete the current season; including the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Academy.

FA COMPETITIONS

With the Emirates FA Cup, Women’s FA Cup, Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase 2019/20 all at advanced stages, The FA is reviewing all options as we seek to complete these competitions whenever it is safe and appropriate to do so. Clubs involved are close to reaching a major Final and for those clubs and supporters we will do all we can to keep the Wembley dream alive.

In respect of The FA Youth Cup, The FA County Youth Cup, The FA Sunday Cup and The FA Inter-League Cup, we are also seeking to complete these competitions if it is feasible to do so.

The FA will also continue planning for FA Competitions to take place for the 2020/21 season.
