Bishop’s Stortford Football Club Official Statement

Wednesday 17th May 2023

Bishop’s Stortford Football Club can confirm that it has registered with the Football Association our intention to appeal against the decision to place the club in the National League North for the 2023/24 season.

Whilst the board fully respect the Football Association’s rules and regulations, it feels that it has a responsibility to the club’s shareholders, players, officials, volunteers and supporters to fully explore the allocation process and have sought professional advice as part of this review.

The Football Association were notified of our intention to appeal this afternoon and the Board will now prepare for our case to be heard at a yet to be determined date.

The club recognise that the allocation process is a challenging one and will respect the result of the upcoming appeal.

Should supporters with to assist the club with financial burden of managing the appeal, we ask that they visit our GoFundMe page:
