Next year's "home ground"

The Isthmian League rules are a little convoluted, and don't appear to state unequivocably "you must tell us where you'll be playing next year by THIS date" but, from what I can determine, the cut-off date is 31st March.

The text I've quoted below, seems to refer to Clubs that have some question over the ground grading for the season ahead, if they differ from the year preceding, but you get the gist:

"Any delay in inspection shall in no way release a Club from its obligation to have its ground ready for
inspection. If for any reason a Club’s existing ground, or any new ground in which it proposes to play its
home matches in the season following inspection, is not available for grading by 31st March prior to
commencement of the relevant season then the Club must, by the 31st March, submit to the Board in
writing its proposals for a venue for its home matches in the following season (“alternative proposal”),
such alternative proposal to be considered (and if appropriate) approved at the next Board Meeting
after 31st March."

Some people on this forum have suggested that the matter is still, perhaps, under discussion, while the Board look to explore new, fantastical, secret and confidential options. Others have suggested the Board know full well where we'll be playing next season - and their delay in telling the supporters is pure petty-minded petulance.

I leave you to make your own conclusions.
