Doncaster News and Features: Conference 2-up set back
January 12, 2001
Reacting to a meeting between Football League chairmen, which seems to have put the issue of promotion and relegation between the Conference and the League no closer, the Conference issued the following news release.
"Following a meeting of Club Chairmen, the Nationwide Conference were extremely disappointed that The Football League are not yet able to confirm the agreement to increase the number of promotion places from the Conference to The Football League.
"The Conference find this position totally unacceptable. It is understood that The Football League have not defined their decision making process. The Conference are urgently seeking a joint meeting with the Football Association and The Football League for the purpose of reaching a satisfactory conclusion that allows additional promotion from the Conference at the end of the season 2001/2002.
"Given the current progress both on and off the field, it is vital that an early decision to complete the agreement is made in order for the Conference clubs to continue with planned investment in stadium development, commercial activities, and playing staff."
A sub-committee of Phil Wallace (Stevenage Borough), Andy Shaw (Telford), Charlie Clapham (Southport), Terry Smith (Chester) and Graham Turner (Hereford) has been set up to spearhead the campaign to achieve the goal of increased promotion for next season.
