Play-Off chaos in Evo-Stik Southern League

The Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division – Central play-off semi-finals; Stourbridge v Alvechurch and King’s Lynn Town v Stratford Town have both been postponed.

That comes after the semi-final between King’s Lynn Town and Stratford Town was called off yesterday. That tie was put on hold due to an FA enquiry into the allegation that Stratford had fielded an ineligible player on a number of occasions this season.

The Evo-Stik South board originally decreed that “in the best interests of fairness” the clash between Stourbridge and Alvechurch which was due to take place at Stourbridge’s War Memorial Ground on Wednesday night, will have to take place at a later date.

Alvechurch reported the match as being postponed earlier, however, the Glassboys tried to avoid the postponement claiming a re-scheduling was difficult due to issues with stewarding, match-day staff, and future scheduled uses of the ground.

But, both semi-final play-offs have now been officially postponed.

Kettering Town have already been promoted as champions and will play Hereford FC next season in the National League North. Should Stratford Town be deducted six or more points Coalville Town, who finished 6th in the league, could end-up in the play-offs instead.

The Evo-Stik North play-off’s are unaffected tonight; Tuesday 30th April:

South Shields v Buxton and Warrington Town v Nantwich Town.
