All remaining normal season matches in the National League and its regional divisions have been cancelled because of coronavirus.

The League announced in a statement on Wednesday afternoon that, after a club vote, there was widespread support for the cancellation of the rest of the 2019/20 campaign.

All three National League divisions have been suspended since March 16 due to COVID-19.

The statement added that ‘the options concerning the sporting outcomes of the 2019/20 season remain under careful and timely consideration, and further updates will be given in due course’.

Michael Tattersall, the National League’s chief executive, said: “At a time when the entire country is wrestling with the devastating impact of Covid-19, the cancellation of the remaining normal season matches brings a degree of certainty to our Clubs coping with the business implications of the virus.”
