THE FOOTBALL Association has confirmed that all football at non-league step three and below will be finished for the season and results will be ‘expunged’.

This will mean that Westfields who were top of the Hellenic Premier and unbeaten in 26 league games, with 20 wins will miss out on promotion.

In the Hellenic Division One West, Hereford Lads Club, Hereford Pegasus and Wellington have also seen their promotion dreams extinguished for this season.

Meanwhile the outcome of Hereford’s season in step two has yet to be decided.

A statement from the FA said: “The FA and NLS steps three to six have reached a consensus that their 2019-20 season will now be brought to an end, and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between NLS steps three to six, and no promotion to NLS step two.

“These decisions will also apply to the leagues and clubs who play at NLS step seven.

“We will continue to assist and support the National League (NLS steps one and two) to determine the outcome of its 2019-20 season as quickly as possible. The planned implementation of the restructure of the NLS will also now be deferred until the start of the 2021-22 season.

“Furthermore, we can now confirm that we have decided that all grassroots football is concluded for the 2019-20 season.

“This will allow the game to move forward and to commence planning for next season.

“Our County Football Associations (CFAs) will be supporting grassroots leagues over the coming days to determine how they should close out their current competitions.”
