Final Decision On 2020 EDFL Senior Season – Now Cancelled. (Issued on Tuesday June 30)

THE EDFL Board of Management has this evening (Tuesday June 30) confirmed its decision to cancel all senior competitions for the 2020 season.

This decision applies to all senior men’s and women’s football competitions, including men’s reserves and thirds competitions.

We will now seek to examine the merits of conducting an alternative competition format for senior men’s and women’s football to be played later this year.

Further updates will be provided in due course – keep updated on this issue here.
