Vanarama National League votes to end 2019/20 season




The season may have already been concluded below step 3 of the English Football Pyramid, but now it seems the Vanarama National League at steps 1 and 2 have voted to follow suit.

BBC Three Counties Radios Ollie Bayliss has tweeted that a majority of clubs voted to not complete the season: “The National League have announced all regular season fixtures have been cancelled. A majority of clubs voted in favour of the resolution not to complete the season. The league will now ask clubs to vote on the ‘sporting outcomes’ of the season.”

That means that Maidenhead United and Hungerford Town’s battles against the drop, and Slough Town’s bid for a play off place in the South division will be decided by a second vote on the ‘sporting outcomes’.

When the season was curtailed in mid March, Maidenhead were 21st of 24 in the National League, a point adrift in the final relegation spot. Slough were 5th in the National League South and Hungerford were bottom of the 22 team division.

At step 3 and below, the decision was taking to simply null and void the season, meaning no promotion or relegation.
