Suburban South Midlands League Prem Div 2020/21

It has been posted on a fans forum today that the SSML Premier Div teams for 2020/21 are as follows:

Arlesey Town, Aylesbury Vale Dynamos, Baldock Town, Biggleswade United, Broadfields United, Colney Heath, Crawley Green, Dunstable Town, Edgware Town, Eynesbury Rovers, Harefield United, Harpenden Town, Leighton Town, Leverstock Green, London Colney, Newport Pagnell Town, North Greenford United, Oxhey Jets, Potton United, Tring Athletic & Wembley FC. 

The Division needs to be ratified at next weeks SSML AGM.  It would seem that there will be no promotion or relegation.

So we now know the who, just need to know the when matches will commence.

Where is the Football???

To all the Wembley FC fans, missing the games at Vale Farm and other venues.

Here we are the end of May 2020 and we still do not know when (or if) the 2020/21 season will commence due to Covid 19.

The Football Association are only interested in the Premier Division as to cancel the league would result in loss of revenue. All leagues lower that National league have been suspended and there has been no indication if and when we will restart.

I have noted through various forums that some higher leagues are contesting the decision, however no concrete notice from the SSML.

Brian & Ian are still at the Club cutting the pitch and generally tidying up the ground so that when we do start we have the best ground in the league. 

So it would look like there will be no football until at least September (if at all) so have a safe and virus free summer and I will try and monitor the situation should there be any change and inform you if we can start playing again.

Football Association News

Today at 15:45, the Football Association announced that ALL Leagues below the National League is to end with immediate affect and that ALL results will be expunged.

There will now be no promotion or relegation from these leagues.

Hope the new season 2020/2021 will resume in August subject the the reduction of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Hope you all have a good summer without any issues.  

SSML Season 2019-2020

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, it would now seem that the FA has declared that all Steps 5 & 6 leagues have now finished. This is yet to be confirmed by the FA so please keep an open mind and check various sites as to the future information.

For Wembley FC this would mean that we remain 3rd from bottom of the table and if a PPG formula is used, I believe that we would remain in this position.

The SSML have not issued a statement as yet as they are probably waiting for FA confirmation. Sad times for all football fans.

This post is not necessarily the views of WFC.

Peter Moore

It is with sadness that I have to report that Peter Moore, longstanding club member, passed away last night. He was 89 years old.

Peter could always bee seen at the club on match days and in the bar after the game and was a very friendly man. He always had a laugh with both sets of supporters and I will always remember his toothless grin.

Our thoughts are with his family at this time and send our heartfelt condolences to them. Funeral details will be advised later when known.

Rest in peace old friend.

Season 2020-2021 proposed teams as at 28’02’2020
