Just announced that the NLN and NLS have voted to end the season.

The National League has voted to continue!

So assuming there's no relegation, half the clubs (those who realistically can't make the playoffs) will be spending money to play meaningless games?

This season will now descend into farce, those not in with a chance of play-offs will furlough full timers and finish the season playing the kids to save money.

We should do the same in my opinion

Yea agreed and I think we should do that unless someone has £250k to hand out.

Dover will presumably be thrown into the NLS for next season and we run with 22 clubs, question is will the EFL accept promoted clubs

Turning the competition into a farce. Expect some strange scorelines for the rest of the season.

I would imagine that means the end of the FA Trophy as well?

Or have we just got as free pass to the SF?

Going to be a lot of dead rubbers , so wont bother paying for steaming the league games now but will listen on line.
Not sure if the Trophy will continue but happy to watch that.
Scratch team out for the league games and go all out to win the FA trophy and win some much needed cash is my view at the moment
