Baris Northern Counties East League
Published 17th May 2012
.....Northern Counties East League to the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League has been turned down, and they will be informing the Leagues Committee of this decision prior to the League Constitutions being confirmed next week.
The club were called to a meeting at the FA Headquarters at Wembley at short notice on Monday morning where they were in front of a Leagues Committee to discuss several areas, including the club`s governance, finance and security of tenure.
While the club were complimented in the commitment shown since the formation of the new committee, there were still several outstanding issues that have forced the decision to be made, and the Football Association believe that it will be of a longer-term benefit to the club that it remain in the Northern Counties East League.
The club are obviously disappointed with the decision, and the committee will be meeting in the coming week to discuss the way forward and further announcements will be made in due course.
Retford have spoken to the Northern Counties East League who have offered their full support to the club moving forward into the 2012/13 season.
