THE National League has fell in line with the rest of non-league football and decided to terminate the season due to coronavirus. 

Confirmation of what had been reported by the Daily Star and London Evening Standard earlier today (Wednesday) arrived when communication from the league was put out by clubs.

National League chief executive Michael Tattersall wrote: "As many of you will know, the National League held a board discussion (on Monday) which was the third such meeting in 11 days. 

"The broad consensus was that our clubs wish for a decision to be made to close the season as soon as possible. 

"The National League attended a further meeting (on Tuesday) by video conference with the Football Association, and the FA has been asked to assist us with making the decisions to officially postpone all remaining National League fixtures and to end the season as soon as possible for the purposes of player contracts.

"The National League is also working with the FA to define all reasonable and practical options for the determination of the 2019-20 season and to provide guidance to clubs on dealing with player contracts, player registrations and the application of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

"We will continue to press for updates and will ensure that any further information is relayed to clubs as soon as it is received.

"The league is very aware that clubs are looking for answers and greater certainty, and we remain focused on delivering these in the most timely manner possible." 

In our region, Kidderminster Harriers and Hereford would be affected but neither would go up or down if the final table does stand, through current positions or if it is reshuffled based on points-per-game ratios.
