Exeter City Women’s team have said that they are extremely proud of their achievements this season following the FA’s decision to bring the season to an end.
A statement from the FA read: “In the women’s game, The FA, FA Women’s Board members and the Women’s Football Conference have consulted and reached a consensus regarding the Women’s Football Pyramid.
“The FA and the Leagues within Tiers 3 to 7 have reached a consensus to bring the season to an immediate end and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between Tiers 3 to 7.”
It means that Exeter City Women, who play in the FA Women’s National League Division One South West, tier four, have affectedly had a season where they have won eight of their 12 games and sit third in the table, null and voided.
However, their joint manager and player Abbie Britton said: “Whilst we are disappointed that the season has come to a sad end, we are extremely proud of what we have achieved this season. To be sat in third position with half the games played after being promoted last season is an outstanding achievement to the squad, the club and everyone involved.
“There has been no decision made on the, Senior Devon County Cup Final between us and Plymouth Argyle WFC as of yet. We’ll keep you updated when we know more.
“We completely agree with the league’s decision to end the season given the current climate and we fully support the FAWNL. Please remember to keep safe, stay at home and follow the NHS guidelines. From everyone at Exeter City Women FC.”
