2019/20 season expunged

The Football Association has announced that the current season will end for all leagues from Step 3 to Step 6 of the National League System.

The decision has been made to expunge all results from the 2019/20 season with no promotion or relegation from any of the concerned leagues, including the Northern Counties East football League.

A statement from the FA said: "We have been working collaboratively with the National League System (NLS), the women's football pyramid and the wider grassroots game since the outbreak of COVID-19 on how to conclude the 2019-20 season in the most appropriate way possible.

"These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game and in consultation across key stakeholders.

"Our primary concern will always be for the safety and welfare of clubs, players, staff, officials, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time.

"Today's steps take into account the financial impact during this uncertain period, whilst considering the fairest method on how the sporting outcomes for the season will be decided with the integrity of the leagues in mind."

The club will make a statement regarding this decision in due course.
