The Southern League is naturally extremely saddened about the demise of Hinckley United Football Club. The likely aftermath of the club’s inability to complete its fixtures will be for their playing record to be expunged and, subject to the Board ratifying this action, the Premier Division table will be revised accordingly.
League Chairman, Ken Turner, said “It is accepted that these are extremely difficult times for all football clubs and it is important that the obvious warnings are heeded and that Clubs ensure that they operate within their means. Otherwise, there are likely to be more and more finding themselves with similar problems to those that have brought an end to the existence of Hinckley United.”
In effect, what this means for Truro City is that we lose our three points and as of today, drop to third from bottom. Four teams facing potential relegation now reads three as Hinckley are now expunged. Third from bottom however, should focus attention on our own dire situation on the playing field.
