The Board of the Pitching In Isthmian League met earlier today, and amongst the items discussed was the statement published by Staines Town FC yesterday.

We have now written to the club, noting their objection to playing further matches at Wheatsheaf Park, and as such have decided to postpone the match between Staines Town and Chipstead scheduled for Saturday. We hope that this will give all parties the breathing space required to find a resolution.

We hope that the club will still be able to play scheduled away matches, and we have offered assistance, where this is required, to enable home matches to be played at suitable alternative venues.

Pitching In Isthmian League Chairman, Nick Robinson, added:

"We very much hope that the situation can be resolved in a way that delivers a positive outcome for Staines Town Football Club. We are available to assist with any footballing matters going forward."

Excellent statement by the league, there’s no need for any games to not be played, if the owner wants to be a social justice warrior that’s entirely his choice but there’s no need to cancel the games and effectively end a great local club’s existence on behest of those whims.

Fair play to the supporters, old and new who are already seemingly putting in plans to continue the club

As with the much vaunted “summer tournament” this latest stunt seems entirely devised to create an issue with the Thames Club but also to ultimately bring about the extinction of Staines Town

Hopefully it does not come to that, too many clubs in this country have unfortunately gone by the wayside upon the egotistical acts of ill fitted owners, I only hope Staines Town, a club I’ve long held dear, do not follow them
