Disappointingly the 2021 season has now concluded with many fixtures still outstanding. The season end date was originally 21st August 2021 by which time all scheduled fixtures should have been finished. Unfortunately some clubs exploited COVID as a reason to call off games and then didn’t seem that bothered about re-scheduling them. The League, run by The RFL, seemed to make no effort to ensure games where rescheduled following postponement lifting all the well established rules that ensure that all games are played.

From a Blackpool Stanley perspective we have been left in a position where none of the remaining fixtures want to be played by our opposition.Indeed although some of those clubs where saying they couldn’t raise a team they were re-arranging fixtures with each other. The League seemed powerless to help resulting us only playing 10 league games all season, and only 4 of these at home.
