Following a meeting of the members of the Huddersfield & District Football League on Monday March 8 it was agreed by 40 votes to 6 to end the season and declare it null and void.

After this vote it was then proposed that the League organise Champions League-style cup competitions based on the divisions that currently compete for the various League Cup competitions with a knock-out final stage.

This was agreed by 44 votes to 0. It was further agreed that the trophies would be the Barlow Cup (divisions 1 and 2 drawn in groups), Groom Cup (divisions 3 and 4 drawn in groups), Richardson Cup (reserve divisions 1 and 2 drawn in groups) and Gee Cup (reserve divisions 3 and 4 drawn in groups).

Group stage games would be played on Saturdays where possible with semi-finals and finals played on an evening at neutral grounds with appropriate trophies and mementoes for players and match officials.

Clubs were reminded that entry in to these competitions was NOT mandatory and purely optional. Entries had to be submitted by March 22.

Clubs were also informed that the League had been advised that friendly games were permitted by the FA and that existing insurance cover was still in operation until June 30.

The FA published guidance for grassroots football with restrictions which allows the first fixtures of our League Cup competitions to start Saturday April 3.

The League will be making the group stage draws for the League Cup competitions and will be publishing a full set of fixtures on Full-Time as soon as possible.

At this stage NO spectators will be permitted and changing facilities must remain closed, however these restrictions are due to be reviewed by the Government on April 12.
