National League clubs agree to VOID season.

THE ENTIRE non-league season is set to be declared finished as a result of the coronavirus.

National League chief executive Michael Tattersal has written to the 68 clubs under his command to confirm his intention of shutting down the competition.

“The FA have been asked to assist us with making the decisions to officially postpone all remaining National League fixtures and to end the season as soon as possible for the purposes of player contracts.”

This could be seen as a precedent.

This is a minor league, but I should think the lesson is not lost, I should think it will depend on how quickly its all brought under control. They seem to be saying they could play up to end of June or evn beyond. It will cost a lot to cancel.

Literally the only silver lining for me in all of this horror is Liverpool will either: A. not win the league or B. Be remembered for winning it in the season that doesn't really count.

If the season is declared null and void, would they return to last season;s league placings for the Uefa competitions. If so, we finished 5th, given that City might be banned, well, se could get in the CL. Argh, we will need lots more players!

All football in England below the three divisions that make up the National League will end immediately and all results will be expunged.

It means there will be no promotion or relegation in these leagues.

The same will happen in the women's game below the Women's Super League and Championship level.

However, the National League, National League North and South, WSL and Women's Championship will continue towards a conclusion "as quickly as possible".

The chairman of South Shields said the club may take legal action after results for the 2019-20 season for the third tier of non-league football and below were expunged.

The Football Association announced the move on Thursday as sport continues to wrestle with the question of how to cope with the coronavirus-enforced shutdown.

South Shields were 12 points clear at the top of the Northern Premier Division and all but mathematically certain of clinching promotion to National League North.

Sorry mate but there are more important thing going on than Football.
