Hayes & Yeading United Football Club



The FA and Leagues at Steps 3 to 6 have reached a consensus that the 2019/20 season for Steps 3 to 6 will be ended with immediate effect and all results will be expunged.

This will mean that there will be no promotion or relegation of Clubs between Steps 3 to 6, or relegation from Step 2.

In light of the above, these decisions will also apply to the Leagues and Clubs at Step 7 of the National League System.

The FA will continue to assist and support the National League (Steps 1 and 2 of the NLS) to determine the outcome of the 2019/20 season.

Consideration was given as to whether the season could be extended indefinitely, or to some later date in the future in order for it to be completed. However, given the current uncertainty regarding when it will be possible to resume competitive football in England, and the fact that many clubs and contracted players want certainty over when football will resume, this option is likely to present great difficulties for football between Steps 3 to 6.

On the basis that the season is ended now, consideration was given as to whether a mechanism should be used to calculate final league tables and preserve promotion and relegation between Steps 3 to 6. Whilst inevitably some clubs will favour this option and the merits of this option have been fully considered by The FA and the leagues, it has been decided that this is not the best option to serve the particular needs of Steps 3 to 6 of the NLS.

The planned implementation of the restructure of the NLS will be deferred until the start of the 2021/22 season. The decisions reached by the NLS leagues will be recommended to the FA Board and FA Council for final ratification.

The Alliance Leagues held the latest of several conference calls last night (Monday) after our own board, and those of the Isthmian and Northern Premier Leagues, met over the weekend to determine how we wish to proceed. We have also participated in calls with the Step 5/6 clubs.

The Step 3 & 4 Leagues share clubs’ frustration that it is taking so long to determine whether the 2019/20 season is to end now, and if so on what basis. To maintain the integrity of our competitions, we ideally need to apply one solution across all of the National League System. However, this may not be possible.

The Southern, Isthmian and Northern Premier Leagues are unanimous in wanting to terminate the 2019-20 season immediately.

Whether that is done on the basis of determining final placings via average points per game, or the season is declared null & void cannot be decided until the National League decides how it wishes to proceed.

Right now, the National League’s position is that they wish to be able to resume the 2019-20 season at some point. The feeder Leagues do not support this because our clubs do not have the financial resources to continue to honour player contracts indefinitely.

The Southern, Isthmian and Northern Premier Leagues have therefore implemented the process to terminate the season.  This has to be ratified by FA council, so there may be a short delay as the relevant documentation is submitted, distributed and approved.  Therefore, the League's desire is not the confirmed outcome.

Whilst this process is on-going, and once the National League has finalised how it wishes to proceed, competition issues can then be decided, together with the implications for promotion and relegation.

Following the statement issued by the League on Friday 13th March 2020, it was indicated that a further statement would be forthcoming on Friday 20th March 2020.

It has been agreed that the League is officially suspended until 3rd April 2020. However, it should be noted that an Alliance Committee Meeting by Conference Call will be taking place during the evening of Monday 23rd March regarding the aforementioned and the season going forward. A further statement will therefore be issued on Tuesday 24th March.

The League is aware of the issues faced by Clubs and is engaging with the FA on these matters. It is anticipated that the League will be able to provide further information and guidance during next week.




Further to the last government update and following the FA statement, Middlesex FA and the Isthmian League have suspended all youth football activity for the foreseeable future.

This means all training, matches, friendlies or any other youth activity is cancelled until further notice.

We do not know more than that at present, but we will continue to update you on the League’s position and it’s future.

We look forward to football returning, but the health and well-being of our community is the main priority at this most challenging time.

Stay safe and well.

We have been advised by the Middlesex County FA that their competitions have been suspended forthwith.

This means our scheduled Charity Cup tie at Spelthorne Sports next week is off.

Further updates as and when we get them.



Further to discussions this afternoon, a decision has been taken by the Southern Football League that ALL BETVICTOR SOUTHERN LEAGUE matches will be POSTPONED between Saturday 14th and Saturday 21st March inclusive.

United's visit to Poole Town that was postponed at the end of February has now been confirmed for Thursday 26th March with a 19:45 kick-off.



Manager Paul Hughes has again this week strengthened his squad with the signing of former Salisbury player Bay Downing.

Bay, a Liverpudlian, comes to United to bolster the promotion push and is another versatile player who can play in midfield or as a wing-back, the position he played for Salisbury against United earlier this season, scoring the Whites second goal at the RayMac.

Welcome Bay, we hope you have a long and successful stay here at the SKYex.




Manager Paul Hughes has this week made a couple of changes to his squad as the push for promotion heads towards its conclusion.

On the arrival front we welcome Siju Odelusi, younger brother of midfielder Sanmi, to the SKYex as he joins from Southern Premier Central side Leiston. Siju currently plays as a defender but earlier in his career played up front so is quite adaptable.

On the departure side, Connor Toomey has left United to rejoin Berkhamsted where he will team up with his brother, and another former United man, Lewis Toomey. We thank Connor for his efforts at United and wish him well for the future.



The club has advised that a Fans Forum will take place at the SKYex on Wednesday 11th March at 7pm where Paul Hughes, and representatives of the club will be available in the bar to give an update on everything that is going on at the club, and with an Under 18s match scheduled to start at 7.45pm, it is hoped that those attending will stay on and give our U18s their support.
