The play-off farce

In their statement confirming the dates of the play-offs that followed the final decision on Enfield, the Ryman League stated that "A further statement will be issued by the Ryman League in due course." I would have hoped that that statement would, from a Ryman perspective, comment on the farce that happened. As far as I am aware no further statement has been released. Maybe the Ryman League and, almostly certainly, the FA just hope that this has now gone away. I personally think that the Clubs involved should not allow this to happen:

1. A definitive statement on compensation for the Clubs involved should be made
2. For those who could not make the play-offs, such as myself, a clear explanation of what happened should be made with any follow-up actions that resulted.

I believe that Hendon should get together with the other Clubs and make a combined appeal for a statement.
