Thornton Redbacks FC Withdraw from the 2018 Herald Women’s Premier League

June 5th, 2018

Thornton Redbacks Football Club has regrettably had to withdraw from the Herald Women’s Premier League (WPL) due to decreasing number of available players.

Thornton Redbacks FC, Herald WPL Coordinator, Michael Hurn said the decision was difficult.

“This decision has not come easy, but we were left with no alternative but to follow this course of action. Our decision was based on a lack of numbers in our senior squad due to work commitments, season ending and prolonged injuries.”

Northern NSW Football advises there will no disruption to fixtures for the remainder of the season.

All 1st Grade fixtures which were to played against Thornton Redbacks FC will now be a bye, while all remaining fixtures in the 14s, 17s and 20s will remain unchanged.

In regards to results to date, in accordance with Regulation 31 of the NNSWF Premier Competitions 2018 Regulations “each opposing team that has played the … withdrawn team shall have the relevant points and goals deleted from its record and shall be credited with a bye result.”

For the avoidance of doubt all goal scorers and Player of the Year votes will also be deleted.

Northern NSW Football will be hosting a meeting with clubs in the short term to discuss the challenges facing clubs and the progress of the league.
