We wish to provide the following update to Clubs in relation to the potential continuation or curtailment of the 2020/21 season at Steps 3 to 6 of the National League System (NLS).

The Alliance Committee (Steps 3 & 4) and Leagues Committee (Steps 5 & 6) met on 8 and 9 February, respectively, to discuss the data that was collated following the recent surveys circulated to Clubs at this level of the game.

During discussions, the Committees acknowledged the likelihood that the Prime Minister will set out a ‘roadmap’ to the nation on 22 February as to how Government intend to begin to reduce the current COVID-19 restrictions.

Given that any such update from the Government on 22 February may provide the Committees with additional, relevant information to help determine the preferred route forward, they have agreed to re convene after this date.

In addition, the Alliance Committee are also conscious of the ongoing process the National League (Steps 1 & 2) are undertaking and the potential impact this could have on any actions the Committee may choose to take.

We will provide an update in due course.

NATIONAL LEAGUE SYSTEM UPDATE. 2 months 3 weeks ago #2

Seems that the "tin can" has once again been kicked down the road.

Rather than just null and void the current season once again, is there any possibility of playing outstanding league fixtures in 2021-22?

National League North and South clubs (Step 2) have voted and the result is that their 2020-21 seasons will now be deemed "null and void".

NATIONAL LEAGUE SYSTEM UPDATE. 2 months 2 weeks ago #4

Been announced earlier that the Northern Premier (and Southern League and Isthmian League as well) seasons are all to be "null and voided" again.

Same applies to the North West Counties League and equivalent level regional leagues elsewhere around the country.

This is technically subject to FA Council ratification but that's almost certainly a formality.

Let's go again next season.

In the meantime, stay safe!

This is no surprise it was inevitable since the last lockdown started

Following the statement on February 24th,this evening the FA Council has ratified the decision to Curtail the 2020/2021 season across Steps 3-6 of the National League System.

As a result, the Northern Premier League season will terminate the league campaign as of this evening.
