Ok so I possibly missed anything about Grendon and whilst I am sure it is here, I cannot see it

Apologies to anyone who I have hurt by repeating something I had overlooked

Apology does not extend to Ladderman, your sarcasm is just annoying and at least Gareth had an excuse

You never post anything positive and your actions stop others and spoil the enjoyment of the site

There are plenty of other places for trolls. Please get a life elsewhere

I have no idea what you're talking about, who you are or what a "Grendon" is. I wasn't replying to you. As the cool kids say, I think you need to take a chill pill.

I couldn't find anything on this forum about Grendon Rangers but, as implied by mention of Karen, the club's resignation was announced on the Spartan South Midlands League Twitter account. Shame they've gone.

EDIT - Karen did actually mention it on this forum, under "NLM Main Site - errors and corrections 2019-20".

Sidlesham have announced that they have resigned from the Southern Combination with immediate effect.

"It is with much sadness and regret that as with immediate effect, Sidlesham First Team have withdrawn from the SCFL. The local parish council have cancelled our current agreement for use of the pitch. Negotiations are ongoing for a new agreement, but at this present time the club is unable to operate at county level. The current uncertainty surrounding the club has made it impossible to recruit new, or now retain existing players to compete at the level required. Our West Sussex team will continue playing with the hope that a suitable agreement can be reached with the council.
Sidlesham FC won’t be commenting further at this time."

...and a real problem for this board if comments are based on the semantics of a club statement and not the statement itself.

I would much rather hear about the action the council was taking, and whether the club statement is justified than argue as to whether this is a county level football league or not

No one is stopping you from asking those questions.

I guess my remark is the rather blasé way they have resigned, without trying to find a groundshare or ask the league for some kind of timeframe in which to sort themselves out, a small initial break from their fixtures to work something out, like their resignation is of no real consequence, as its just county league level, “we can still carry on in the West Sussex League”. Other clubs fought tooth and nail over the summer to get into or retain their step 7 status only to be denied, or relegated. Sidlesham’s (a rather unstable club at this level as it is) statement just seemed a little, as I said, blasé, taking things for granted, and belittling the level (a privilege for a lot of clubs) they were actually playing at.

I wish them well on their journey back though.


A bigger problem for this board is certain members taking constant umbrage with other people's comments and scolding them for their posts just because they don't necessary like them or agree with them.

I thought it was your comment that was blasé, rather their initial statement. In turn this caused KYM to defend the idea that the Southern Combination is a County level league, rather than consider the statement made by the club. I would like to know more about what it is that has caused Sidlesham to make this decision. I have read the local paper report and the twitter feed from the club (which states they will not be making a further statement at the moment). Nothing says why there is a sudden change in conditions, and why the West Sussex League team can play on a pitch now denied to the Step 6 club.

I can understand it if you were to suggest that the reason stated was false, and it is a reaction to gaining two points only from seven games.

Hope I have not jumped the gun, but I have updated the NLM Main Site by removing all Sidlesham's results and fixtures.

Just 7 results to reinstate should Sidlesham's situation be reversed.

Sidlesham Parish Council response; https://www.chichester.co.uk/...ion-league-1-9087242


Quote
The council issued a statement to the Observer which said: "Sidlesham Parish Council, owners of the Memorial Playing, Field is keen to develop the use of the facility as a community sports and recreation centre.

"In order to progress this development, the Parish Council needs the flexibility to attract other users and grant funding bodies. The Parish Council therefore terminated the existing open ended arrangement with Sidlesham Football Club and offered the club the opportunity to continue to use the pitch under an annually reviewed agreement.

"Sidlesham Football Club advised the Parish Council that this short term contract was not acceptable under football league rules.

"At the 18 September Parish Council meeting, attended by officials of the club, it was agreed that the Parish Council would work with Sidlesham Football Club and the Football League to find a mutually acceptable form of words to resolve the issue.

"The Parish Council Chairman contacted the League as agreed and has been advised that Sidlesham Football Club has already resigned from the League. The Parish Council is disappointed that the Football Club has made this decision."

Right...so basically Sidlesham have overreacted? Thrown their toys out of the pram and resigned just like that with no warning and no real desire to fight to stay at Step 6.


I wish them continued existence, but if the above is true, lets hope they aren't allowed back at Step 6 (or "County Level" as they like to think of it) level any time soon. As I say they're are clubs up and down the country that would give their right arm to be in Sidlesham's shoes, with a ground they can call home and a division with vacancies that repeatedly means relegation is no threat. Some have fought appeals to retain places at Step 6, some have been fighting on the pitch to get up season after season. And then there's clubs like Sidlesham who just throw it all the way because they're a bit irked by their local council, and feel like throwing a paddy!

Possibly an overreaction, possibly pragmatism - is there (and this is a genuine question, as I don't know!) a quote "mutually acceptable form of words" that would sit within the FA's standard rules for Step 6 re security of tenure?

For the record, the league have notified clubs that Sidlesham's results will be expunged and the table altered accordingly, but that doesn't seem to have happened (at least that I've seen) as yet.

That's an impressive number of metaphors in a couple of posts Sarumio (prams, teeth, nails, arms, shoes, paddies) - shouldn't they give their right foot to be in their shoes?
I can still hear the noise of Sidlesham boot on Maidstone shinpad, FA Vase about 15 years ago. Bunch of thugs.
