Bath City FC is disappointed to learn of the verdict handed out by the National League in relation to unfulfilled fixtures (below), and the fact that it has seen fit to hand out fines at a time when we and other clubs are fighting for survival in the face of the financial impacts of Covid-19. Despite explaining our case in detail on a face-to-face call, we’ve been fined £4,000 (£2,000 per match with a third charge dropped) and have a suspended four-point deduction for the 2021/22 season. We extend our support to the other 15 clubs at our level similarly punished for doing what they felt was vital to the survival of their own clubs.
The Board has its regular monthly meeting on Monday when we will consider our response in full. In the meantime, thank you to our supporters, sponsors and everyone at our club who has the best interests of Bath City, and of football, at heart.
