Phil Wallace on EFL Appeal and Stevenage's Sky Bet League Two Survival

12 August 2020

Following the outcome of the EFL’s appeal with regards to misconduct charges against Macclesfield Town, Stevenage Football Club will remain in Sky Bet League Two for the 2020/21 season...

The Club’s attention now switches firmly to the beginning of the new EFL season, which begins on the weekend of 12th September 2020.

Chairman Phil Wallace said, "I can’t begin to explain how much work went into our fight to stay in the EFL. We, along with many other clubs, believed that the decision of the panel in June was unduly lenient insofar that points were not deducted simply because they would have resulted in relegation.

"That’s not, in our opinion, how sanctions should work - if a panel decides there should be no consequences of a points deduction, then there is no point in the sanction. The EFL obviously felt the same way and all credit to them for deciding to appeal and to state their case as the organising body.

"The episode is now closed and we look forward to the coming season. We have learnt from the mistakes made last season and hope to come back with a winning team that is exciting to watch.

"The support of our community has been crucial since the pandemic started and I hope that we can unite and drive the club forwards from here under Alex, Lennie and Mark."
