Donaghadee Football Club have been ordered to pay the full costs of arbitration after losing out in their bid to have the decision to curtail the 2019-20 Northern Amateur Football League season overturned.

Big wedding in fictional home of 'The Godfather' fuels virus
ROME (AP) — The Sicilian town of Corleone, made famous by the fictional Mafia clan in “The Godfather,” has ordered schools closed and a limited lockdown after a spate of coronavirus infections were tied to a big wedding there last week. The city administration told all 250 guests at the Sept. 12 wedding and anyone who lives with them to self-isolate and inform their doctors and city health authorities while awaiting virus tests. In a Facebook post, Mayor Nicolò Nicolosi said he expected “maximum cooperation to overcome the current crisis.”The town, which is part of the province of Palermo, has reported at least seven positive cases in recent days.
The League Management Committee later decided that no more games in the 2019/20 season would be played after May 31. That followed a vote involving clubs where a majority voted in favour of accepting that the season could not be finished.
Donaghadee appealed against the NAFL's decision and then sought arbitration on the matter.
Independent arbitration firm Sport Resolutions said in its report that there was "no error of law" in the July 15, 2020 decision of the Appeals Board.
The report also stated that "despite DFC’s numerous objections, it was given a fair hearing and the decision was correct in law."
Donaghadee issued a statement following the arbitration ruling.
In it the club said it was disappointed with the "ultimate finding of this case", adding that it was "difficult not to come away with a grave sense of injustice".
