FC’12 England – Northern Premier League 2020/2021

I had the great pleasure of making friends on Twitter and working with some of these guys for the 2019/2020 season and created the Fooball Manager kit pack for the Northern Premier League to add to their already vast collection by talented and artistic volunteers. Due to me not being able to commit the time it required due to work reasons, they have continued again this season and created the pack for 2020/2021! They have already listed the Isthmian League kit pack, and will work on the other Step 3 divisions – read below and visit their site!

FC’12 style is a kit style project of FM Slovakia. FM Slovakia has become famous for its quality and interesting creation of unique graphic addons for Football Manager. But the most famous are probably our 2D kits in our own style called FC’12, which was originally developed by our friends in France. We’re creating kits in this style since 2013. This style has become very popular over the years and has found a place in the graphics addons and hearts by many Football Manager players, to make his playing experience more enjoyable. This pack contains 49 real kits; home, away and third for most clubs in this style. It is intended for use with FM 2021, but it will work with all versions of the game from FM 2009 onward.

Adams and Morse join Gateshead on month-long loans

Defenders Blair Adams and Dillon Morse have joined Gateshead on month-long loan deals from South Shields.

With the Pitching In Northern Premier League season currently suspended until at least March 6th and Government restrictions prohibiting the Mariners from training together, the decision has been made to allow both players to depart temporarily.

National League North side Gateshead are currently permitted to train and play, meaning Adams and Morse will be given an opportunity to compete for game-time over the next month.

Both players remain a firm part of the club’s long-term plans. We wish them both well for their spell at the International Stadium and look forward to seeing them back in Shields colours at the earliest opportunity.


Statement following latest lockdown

“The board of the Northern Premier League has, together with our fellow Trident Leagues, reviewed the implications of the latest Government lockdown. The matter was also discussed at length by the FA’s Alliance Committee earlier this week.

In order to reach a decision that will apply across Steps 3 & 4 in the National League System, and which is informed by the views of all clubs at Steps 3 & 4, clubs will shortly be asked by the Football Association to provide their views on whether the 2020/21 season should be terminated and, if not, what the alternative should be.

Independent of that survey, all three of the Trident League’s boards hold the view that the season should cease immediately and be declared null and void.

The ultimate decision lies with The FA Council, following a proposal made by the Alliance Committee but no proposal will be drafted until clubs’ views have been collated and assessed.

In the meantime, the Northern Premier League is postponing all fixtures up to and including Saturday 6th March since there is no suggestion that the national lockdown will be lifted prior to this date.

The League will continue to provide its Member Clubs with updates as and when it is able to do so.”
