The non-league world was put into meltdown last week when The FA released the Step 5 and Step 6 constitution and it included YouTube side Hashtag United.
What made matters slight worse was that they replaced established Spartan South Midlands Football League side FC Broxbourne Borough – but in a dramatic u-turn The FA have reprieved them.
Is pleased to announce that we WILL be staying in the @SpartanSMFL Division 1 next season, we have been given a reprieve, thank you everyone for your support 👍🏻💙⚽️

So what happens to Hashtag United?
Nothing certain has been confirmed however we know they were appealing their league selection so we assume they will now be placed in Eastern Southern League
eSports team Hashtag Utd will slot into the Eastern Senior League (Eastern Counties Div 1).
The division only had 19 teams in it, so @hashtagutd can join without a side losing their place.👍@NonLeagueCrowd @WinslowUtdFC @RRFC_tweets @thecoldend @TheBootifulGame @AydenCallaghan pic.twitter.com/Ib3tckTvZE
