Gateshead 13:23 - Apr 21 with 3316 viewsscarrow

Thrown out of the play offs for failing to get their stadium up to EFL standards. Solihull get a bye.

Edit - failure to have a long enough lease with the council

Council refused to grant a 10 year lease to the club according to national league statement & other options put forward were not deemed as acceptable by the EFL. Fans shafted… no change there.

Why leave the announcement until after the final day of the season?

The dispute and challenge has been going on for some time. The National League have been arguing with the EFL to allow Gateshead to continue.

If I was Aldershot I would be ringing the lawyers today. Surely they should take the place rather than give Solihull a bye

Seems very unfair on Gateshead fans, players and staff. Surely should have let them at least compete in the play offs. Tough ask for them to win them anyway but surely then they could have sorted something out. Also surely Alty should have been given the bye given they finished above Solihull. Shambles all round.

Aldershot didn't qualify for the play-offs so why does it involve them?

This stinks almost as high as when Stevenage were refused admittance to the football league a few years ago.

Having been to Alty for the first time last Saturday would imagine there will be a need for some ground upgrades should they make it into the EFL.
2 or 3 of the team looked half decent but feel they would struggle big style without a few signings should they go up.
Appreciate they had little to play for ,so perhaps getting a slightly biased view

If somebody drops out the next team in the league take their place - I realise it might not be in the rules but this happens in many sports. Just my thoughts

Awful for Gateshead, full deserving of their place in the playoffs and they're the best team I've seen all season.

I also think it would be wrong for another team to take their place, Aldershot haven't done enough to qualify for the playoffs so don't deserve to be in there because of someone else's unfair misfortune. Just like if a team in the relegation zone went bust, you wouldn't then level it out by relegating the next worse team because they've done enough over 46 games to stay up.

The whole thing is a circus.

English football has had a ridiculous week or so with this injustice and the decision regarding FA Cup Replays.

If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor

Fair enough

Of course all this could have been avoided had Gateshead Council been more helpful. There is a backlash in the North East on this one. The council have been closing leisure centres to save money and want to either sell off, or let a private business or charitable trust, take over what is left including Gateshead Arena. Rather than stipulate that any new incumbent has to honour a 10 year lease, they are arguing they don't want the transfer of assets to be an issue because of a long lease. Personally I think they have lost their commonsense here as the facility should be for the benefit of the community first, second and third, and not about making the transfer to a third party operator easier. I suspect a lot of councillors will lose their seats next month. The council leader wants to take over the buses whilst trying to sell off what is left of leisure facilities.

What if Gateshead had finished 1st?
You wouldn't promote 2nd because they hadn't done enough to finish top?
I think Aldershot should have got their play off spot.

No promotion and only 1 club relegated. It's happened before.
