Sunderland AFC Ladies’ 2019-20 season has ended with immediate effect due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The FA, FA Women’s Board members and the Women’s Football Conference consulted and reached a consensus regarding the women’s football pyramid on Thursday, with all results to be expunged.
As it stood, SAFC Ladies were top of the FA Women’s National League North and preparing for the FA Women’s National League Cup final.
While today’s decision will lead to disappointment for players, staff and supporters alike, the club accepts it and recognises that in these unprecedented times, difficult measures must be taken to protect the safety and welfare of all within the game.
Finally, everyone at SAFC would like to congratulate Mel and her players and staff on a fantastic season. We look forward to seeing you back in action, and we know you will come back stronger than ever.
