Chatham Town will vote against the Ryman League constitution but chairman Jeff Talbot knows it won’t change a thing.

Last week the Football Association announced that for a fourth year running Chatham will be playing in the northern section of the league, dominated by teams from Essex.

Mr Talbot has constantly pleaded the club’s case to the FA but it has made no difference.

“Every year there seems to be some different reason why we stay in the north,” said Town’s frustrated chairman. I just don’t believe there is any fairness in it.

“In terms of appeal, there is no formal mechanism. Our option is to vote against the constitution of the leagues at the Ryman AGM – which we will do – and as we have done for several seasons.

“Unfortunately despite many clubs supporting our view, it has not, so far, been backed up with hard votes against the constitution.”
