THE National League is yet to respond formally to a requisition for an extraordinary general meeting, Maidstone United and Dorking Wanderers say.

Proposed by the two National League South clubs, the EGM - at which it is hoped to hold a vote of no confidence in the league’s chairman and boar - is believed to be backed by 17 clubs.

Alongside the requisition, the two clubs have proposed a working party to consider reforms to the league’s governance, such as immediately rescinding fines for not fulfilling fixtures.

It is hoped they will receive a reply within 14 days.

“The National League is fully committed to constructive and healthy dialogue with all its member clubs,” a league statement reads.

“We are currently in discussions with a number of clubs about this issue and we will continue to communicate with them.”

Chairman Brian Barwick, pictured, has announced he will step down at the end of the season. The league has recently given Mark Ives the general man-ager post on a full-time basis.
