All football below National League to end 15:54 - Mar 26 with 32 viewsBringBackTheRedRoom

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 divisions.

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 FA said it was "reviewing all options" to complete the men's FA Cup, which had reached the quarter-final stage, and other cup competitions.

"These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game," said a Football Association statement.

"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 decision applies to steps three to seven in men's non-league football, while all "grassroots" divisions below these tiers have also finished. It has still yet to be decided whether these seasons are to be voided.

In women's football, tiers three to seven have also ended.

More to follow.

Bet South Shields are far from happy, being 12 points clear in the Northern Prem, and paying several players over £1000 a week. They had bet the farm on going up and will be squealing like a stuck pig I imagine.

Young spud`s lot have won through to a cup final (at the DW stadium) and were still in contention for a play-off place, so it is disappointing for them too.

But it is the right decision...

Bugger, I'd asked the Bamber Bridge Ultras to chant "You couldn't beat a fat, old Neil Shipperley" as well....⚽

Oddly enough Bamber Bridge`s place was in question as they have played Rowan Roche in the competition, who had played (for City coincidentally) in an earlier round....
