The SCEFL Board met last night and as a result can provide the following update.
The board of directors can confirm that, as things stand, the Southern Counties East League season will start on Saturday September 5.
It is one of a series of key dates agreed at the latest board meeting.
1. The league’s annual general meeting will be held remotely on Friday July 31 with full details to be sent to clubs shortly.
2. Given the likelihood that all matters will not be finalised by this date, the league have also proposed an EGM for Thursday August 13.
3. Player registrations will be accepted by the league’s registration secretary from Saturday August 1.
4. Given the shortened season, the FA Cup and Vase competitions taking place and the indication that county cups could also be played, the board have decided not to proceed with the Challenge Cup for the 2020/21 season.
All of the above, of course, is subject to change should circumstances regarding COVID-19 alter, and further guidance is released by the FA.
