Ryhope CW fight to keep Northern League place

Have your say

Ryhope CW have not given up hope of retaining their place in the EBAC Northern League Second Division.

Late on Wednesday they were informed by the FA that they would be treated as a relegated club, but the Colliers today launched an appeal.

Secretary Dougie Benison explained “We feel we have a good case for a one year extension to give us time to update our facilities.

“The FA and the ENL have been very helpful and I don’t want to say too much at this stage but obviously the committee and manager Martin Swales are waiting to see where we stand.”
