The 2020/21 North Riding County FA Senior Cup has been cancelled.

A statement by the North Riding FA said: "Following consultation with the competing clubs, North Riding FA has taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020/21 North Riding FA Senior Cup competition.

"We have taken into account the views shared with us and understand the difficulties that those clubs in the National League System, in particular, are facing, including potential fixture congestion and financial pressures.

"These factors, alongside the ongoing uncertainty about when football may be able to return and the number of games remaining to be played in the competition, have led us to believing that it will not be feasible, nor in the best interests of the clubs, to conclude the competition this season.
