Hol­beach are stay­ing in the Premier Di­vi­sion


The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Sport -

HOL­BEACH have re­ceived a United Coun­ties League Premier Di­vi­sion re­prieve.

The Tigers, who were de­moted to Di­vi­sion One af­ter fail­ing to meet the re­quired ground­grad­ing, have been handed a rapid re­turn to the top-flight.

Hol­beach will step back up af­ter Stot­fold left the Premier Di­vi­sion to join the Spar­tan South Mid­lands League.

An of­fi­cial UCL state­ment said: “In ac­cor­dance with the league rules, Stot­fold’s res­ig­na­tion means that they are deemed to have taken the place of one of the ‘rel­e­gated’ clubs, hence Hol­beach United will now re­tain their place in the Premier Di­vi­sion for sea­son 2010-11 as they were the high­est placed of the two clubs pre­vi­ously iden­ti­fied for rel­e­ga­tion.”

Hol­beach had failed to man­age the re­quired ‘F’ ground grad­ing due to not hav­ing a hard­stand­ing sur­face all the way around their Carters Park pitch by the March 31 dead­line.

But work to in­stall that has now been car­ried out.
