North Ferriby United’s record has now officially been expunged from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

The East Yorkshire club, who were already all but doomed to relegation, were wound up last week and now the NPL has finally confirmed their record has been wiped out in accordance with FA guidelines.

Workington Reds are still in one of the remaining relegation places with the two teams finishing in 20th and 21st set to drop down.

A statement from the NPL said it had to await formal notification of the liquidation before it could confirm its position.

Member clubs were updated on the situation at the chairman’s meeting on Sunday.

The Premier Division league table has now been updated to reflect the changes.

North Ferriby United remain as the bottom club in the table, with Reds just above them and Mickleover Sports currently occupying the other relegation berth.

At the top of the league both Farsley Celtic and Warrington Town have lost points in the title race while South Shields benefited, having been one of only two teams who lost to Ferriby this season.

Reds are back in Evo-Stik Premier League action on Saturday, at home to fourth-placed Nantwich Town.

And they will be hoping to pick up some more points, on the back of last Saturday’s crucial 1-0 win over Whitby Town.

Reds came in from praise from the Whitby manager Chris Hardy after the game, which they won 1-0.

He told the club website: “The result went to worthy winners.

“They did things better than what we did but we didn’t help ourselves and I was annoyed that we weren’t winning first and second balls.

“When it came down to game management and dealing with the basics, they did it a lot better than us and ran out worthy winners.”
