League Two relegation place not confirmed as EFL plan appeal

    The League Two relegation place is not confirmed as EFL reveal they plan to appeal the independent panel’s decision on Macclesfield’s points deduction.

    The Silkmen were given a two-point deduction, which had been suspended from a previous charge, after failing to pay wages on time in March.

    The EFL expected a more severe deduction. Any more than the initially awarded two points will send Macclesfield Town down in Stevenage’s place. – Fan reaction to the latest football news, gossip & funnies

    Macclesfield were docked 13 points in total in the 2019-20 season, which was curtailed early after a vote by clubs because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Stevenage finished bottom of League Two, a point adrift of Macclesfield.

    Soon after the independent panel’s decision regarding Macclesfield’s case on 19 June, Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace said his club were not ready to give up on their fight for survival.

    A statement was published on the league organisation’s website: “The EFL Board has determined the League will appeal against the outcome of an Independent Disciplinary Commission in respect of misconduct charges brought against Macclesfield Town.

    “Those charges related to failing to pay a number of players on the applicable payment dates due in March 2020, failing to act with utmost good faith in respect of matters with the EFL and for breaching an order, requirement, direction or instruction of the League.

    “As advised by the EFL on 19 June 2020, the Commission ruled that the Club was to be deducted a further two points from the 2019/20 League Two table and fined £20,000.

    “There will be no further comment at this time.” – Fan reaction to the latest football news, gossip & funnies

    In addition to those penalties, the independent panel ruled that a further four points should be deducted but suspended, and only activated if the club does not pay its players on time during next season.
