Eastern Counties league structure proposal voted down
20 April 2016
Posted by on
Chairman of the ECRU Competitions committee, John Mackay, has today written to club secretaries to inform them that the proposed league restructure will not go ahead (click here for details of the proposals). Of the 23 clubs in Eastern Counties eligible to vote, 11 voted in favour, 6 against with 6 clubs not voting. Although 48% of clubs voted in favour the required majority was 67%.
Of the 24 Essex clubs eligible to vote, 17 (71%) voted in favour, 3 against with 4 not voting, but any change needed both ECRU and Essex clubs to have a 67% majority so the status quo will remain.
You can read John Mackay’s letter by clicking here which includes information about promotion, relegation and play-offs.
I will publish more on my blog in due course.
