FOOTBALL: City to stay in Conference North

1:07pm Friday 6th June 2014

The Football Association have confirmed that Oxford City will not be relegated from Conference North after they dismissed an appeal by Hayes & Yeading United.

Hayes fell out of the Conference South last month following a dramatic final-day defeat to Dover Athletic at Kingfield.

However, Phil Babb’s side moved to try and save themselves from the drop by appealing to the FA.

They argued that as Vauxhall Motors tendered their resignation from the Conference North last March, they should have remained at that level of non-League football rather than City.

This was based on the fact that they ended the campaign on 45 points, eight more than City, in their respective divisions.

But the FA rejected their appeal.
