Release Date: 28/09/2012
FOLLOWING a meeting of the Board of the Irish Football Association last night, Newry City FC Limited’s membership of the Association has been terminated after the Board received confirmation that its registered directors did not intend to appeal the winding-up order that was placed on the club in the High Court in Belfast on Thursday 20 September 2012.
As a result of the termination of Newry City FC Limited’s membership of the Association, all results from games involving teams under the direct control of Newry City FC this season to date will be expunged.
All registered players of Newry City FC have had their registration unilaterally terminated by the Association (effective from 31 May 2012) and all players are immediately available for registration as amateur players for any club that participates in a purely amateur league.
All players will be unable to register for a club who play in a professional league until 1 January 2013, with players also unable to play in the Irish Cup or the Intermediate Cup, which are subject to the professional game regulations, until 1 January 2013.
The Association will continue to work with all the various stakeholders, including MLAs, in the City of Newry and its surrounding areas to promote the game of football and will provide assistance and guidance in any way that it can to support any plans that may be put in place.
