    To be voided.

    Shame but no surprise I guess.

    Shame for Barrow...looked good for a return to the football league.

    You'll still have wankers from higher divisions wanting the season to end

    Steps 5 and 6 means Levels 9 and 10, not the National League's divisions.

    The leagues at Steps 3 and 4 (Isthmian, Northern Premier, and Southern) all want to terminate the season as well.

    The future for all clubs at all levels I think. Interesting to note from a statement on Essex Senior League that it's the FA who has the final decisions on what happens with the leagues rather than the people running them. Also the choice between PPG and just null and void are the only options.
    I'd hope should this happen in the league they go with PPG and get it as a legally binding decision to stop any comeback from teams who will be relegated because of it and not promoted etc.

    Now official and of course clubs like South Shields aren't happy - talking about legal action against lost revenue etc.

    They'll get nowhere and have already said as much. Problem is it's all in the rules set out before the season starts about abandoned/cancelled seasons. It's obviously highly unlikely a season is cancelled but here we are. The FA should have applied PPG, which was their other option, but claim the clubs at steps 3-6 where in a majority for expunging results. Gathering by the views since I'd say that's not true, even clubs who would have been relegated thought PPG was going to be applied.

    Yep and because the f.a null and voided the divisions below they can now do nothing other than void these divisions without facing a massive legal challenge from clubs who should have been promoted.
    Stevenage will be happy.

    Quite true - will the virus take longer to be contained or the legal action?

    I feel like the fair option would to at least play a two-legged playoff between Stevenage and Barrow, although Stevenage were going down and there was no way they possibly wouldn't, so really Barrow should be automatically promoted.

    Well unless Macclesfield were docked more points which meant they got pushed down into that final sport.

    I fear a team like Macc won't exist next season..

    With Bury gone, there's a vacancy in L2 for Barrow, so it should be between Stevenage and Harrogate for the last place.
