United’s future up in the air
SHEFFIELD & Phoenix United have been suspended from the Yorkshire South Premier League with the team struggling to raise a team for their match against Tickhill this weekend.
The club’s future is now in doubt, with the league committee suspending the team “to remove any uncertainty about the remaining games.”
“The League are very aware of the extraordinary difficulties that have been faced by the club during the season, and in particular over the last few weeks,” a statement from the league chairman Roger Pugh read.
“We would like to place on record our thanks for the efforts made by the chairman, Michael Heseltine, his son Jacob, and Matthew Rees to keep the team going at this very difficult time.
“We will continue to support Michael in his talks about the future of the club in the coming weeks.”
All points earned from games involving the club will stand, while their opponents for their final three matches will all receive 12 points.
