The Hunts FA will enforce fines issued during the 2019/20 season – even though it has been declared null and void.

The county association confirmed its stance on the issue but is prepared to give individuals and clubs extra time in which to pay them.

A Hunts FA statement revealed: “In light of the current challenges that we all face, the Huntingdonshire FA have decided that all payments for outstanding admin and discipline fines relating to misconduct charges will be deferred and will not be requested until 14 days prior to a club’s first fixture of the 2020/21 season – unless clubs wish to settle them earlier.

“However, all such payments need to be completed before your first fixture.”

Funding has been made available to clubs struggling through the Coronavirus pandemic after Sport England put together a £195 million package.
