Weymouth FC Club Statement Regarding FA Cup

Weymouth Football Club strongly condemns the action taken yesterday by the FA and the Premier League to remove first-round replays from the FA Cup.

The decision was made with no consultation between the Football League, National League and Grass Roots clubs, and further to this FA Council Members.

This competition has, in its past, been a catalyst for not only lasting memories but strong financial reward for clubs who heavily rely on big fixture income to survive each year.

The action highlights a concerning degree of disregard for the entirety of the English football pyramid, and as such a thorough understanding of the importance of all clubs within.

Weymouth Football Club stands with all clubs that this decision will impact, and urges the Football Association to suspend proceedings to action until a time that sees proper consultation between all clubs that this inadvisable decision impacts.
