The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THE Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust has blasted plans to re­brand the Foot­ball League next sea­son.

The com­pe­ti­tion is set to be re­named the English Foot­ball League, short­ened to EFL for “ev­ery­day use”, de­spite the pres­ence of Cardiff and fel­low Welsh out­fit New­port County in its three di­vi­sions.

Tim Hart­ley, chair­man of the trust, said:“It’s a lit­tle bit in­sult­ing that both Welsh clubs and po­ten­tially many more from lower down the foot­ball pyra­mid will be classed as English.

“The re­brand­ing is fac­tu­ally in­cor­rect and com­pletely un­nec­es­sary. New­port and Cardiff are both in the Foot­ball League.”
