The following could only happen at the Sheffield & Hallamshire County F.A.
Statement from the SHCFA
Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA wishes to announce that due to errors made in the First Round draws of all three of our Saturday team cup competitions – which have had a “knock-on” effect on each of the competitions – the first rounds of the following competitions have been re-drawn
- Senior Challenge Cup
- Association Challenge Cup
- Junior Challenge Cup
Following the original draws in each competition, it was realised that a number of teams had been inadvertently entered in to the wrong Saturday team competitions for the 2016-2017 season
In turn, because the errors made affected the actual number of teams participating in each competition, it was necessary – for the fairness of all competing clubs – for a re-draw of the three competitions to be made
Chairman of the Cups Committee Stuart Topham said: “After due consideration of all the facts, we believe that a re-draw of all three competitions is the fairest way to deal with this situation. Fortunately none of the fixtures in any of the competitions from the original draw have taken place. We must sincerely apologise to all clubs, for any inconvenience the re draw may cause but confirm that all competitions have now been properly drawn.”
The revised draws will be made on Friday 9th September and will be available on the Sheffield & Hallamshire CFA website later that day.
