Barking remove appeal on Bostik South Central move
PUBLISHED: 17:22 03 June 2019
Barking has officially announced its withdrawal to an appeal submitted to the FA about their move into the Bostik South Central.
The Blues had been provisionally moved across from the Bostik North when the non-league structure was announced a few weeks ago.
After much debate within the club with key stakeholders, they've decided to remove their appeal, and take their place in the South Central division for the 2019/20 season.
