Football Clubs vote in favour to unite League and Governing Body
Although the vote is non-binding at this stage, it is the first step to unifying the two organisations. Representatives from the JFA and JFC will work together on drafting the new framework, which will take approximately 8-10 weeks. This will be presented to the Clubs at a Special General Meeting, where another vote (a resolution) will be taken to agree the proposed framework, changes in constitution and other rules of the JFC. There are also likely to be changes to the memorandum and articles of association of the JFA and its rules, and this too will require member approval at a JFA EGM. Both meetings will be notified to the Clubs with the required notice periods. Clubs will be involved every step of the way with monthly meetings planned to present progress reports. Small working groups will be formed to ensure the road map for Jersey football represents the views of its stakeholders.
Jersey Combination President said: "We have many fond memories of from the Combination over many years. Now is the right time to join forces with the JFA to help the Clubs and develop the game in Jersey. I am confident our partnership, working with Jean-Luc, the JFA staff and Exec, will deliver exiting times and more positive memories for our football community."
