Supplementary Cup Twitter Row

Rustington Football Club would like to draw a line under the recent press and social media debate concerning our Division 2 Cup Final with Montpelier Villa to be played at Steyning Town Football Club on Tuesday 18th May 2021. 

As a club we made official representations to the league about the scheduling of the game asking for the game to be moved to Saturday 22nd May for the benefit of all the players, officials and supporters of the club which the league declined. Our focus is now on supporting Jon and the team as they prepare for the game next Tuesday and we look forward to facing Montpelier Villa and visiting Steyning Town football club who have always been excellent hosts. 

We have put on record our disappointment with comments made online by the SCFL’s official Twitter account and now want to move on. We will be making no further comment on the matter which we now see as closed.
