‘Despite the disappointment there are plenty of positives to take’

Wells City FC 1st team managers Nathan Truckle and Tom Clifford-Jones have made the following statement about the ending of the football season for lower league teams:

Obviously we totally understand that the season had to come to an end and everyone’s health and safety is a lot more important than any game of football. We are disappointed that the season has been instructed as null and void by the FA as it has stopped us from potentially gaining promotion to the Western League premier division.

Saying that, there was always going to be disappointed clubs whichever decision the FA decided to make. Despite the disappointment it was a hugely positive season for us as we easily improved on last season’s 10th place finish, pushing for promotion with only 12 games remaining and being in the semi-final of the Somerset Premier cup.

We brought in 13 new players this season so it has given them three-quarters of a season to only become stronger for next season, so despite the disappointment there are plenty of positives to take.

On a final note CJ and I would like to thank all of the lads, our management team and the club for allowing us to work at such a brilliant club. A huge thank you to Pete Deverall and Neil Sheppard who have done an incredible job around the ground all season and I know are already working hard to make sure we hit the ground running next season.

Lastly, we would like to thank everyone who has shown support to us this season, your support is our driving force and we hope more of you get involved next season and we can create something special together next season. Everyone stay safe and we hope to see you soon.

Trucks and CJ
