The Club Players’ Association has disbanded.
The group was established in 2017 with the aim of tackling the fixtures issue for all players.
The CPA views its task as complete following the decision at Congress to implement a split-season.
They unanimously decided to wind up at an emergency general meeting on Monday night after what they say is “helping to achieve their objective of a meaningful club period for fixtures”
Also in a statement, they confirmed: “Our reasoning has always been that the right approach to fixtures would provide a vastly improved platform for participation in games for all players at all levels. With that objective achieved, the time is right to step away.”
