Have to feel for SC.   All the money and effort he has put into getting this season up and running only to be shafted by the NL.    The fallout from all of this could be massive.

1. BT Sports sponsorship package
2. National League risking losing promotion places to the Football League
3. Running costs for the club from now until Aug with no income.
4.  Sponsors may or may not wanting their money back.
5. Season ticket holders to offer refunds to.
6.  Damage to the goodwill of the League and indeed the clubs going forward.

Take my hat off to Stephen Cleeve a real kick in the guts, and it wonít end here.

What the National League management are doing is a repeat of the confusion and prevarication of last year when the ability to make a decision seemed to have passed them by. Clubs need certainty. If it is bad news then decide it and communicate it , don't procrastinate.
