A follow on from Bury News on 25 April 2020 basically confirming previous reports:

These reports cover two different Clubs.

Bury FC  have applied for a place in the National League next season.


Bury AFC (a Phoenix Club) hope to play in the North West Counties League next season, the 9th and 10th tiers of the pyramid.

I had noticed that B&G. Just interesting that two Clubs are arising from the ashes of one (Bury FC) - what might happen to Bury AFC if Bury FC get back into Step 2 next season at National or Northern.

The National League has asked clubs to share their views on whether it would be feasible to play the playoffs.

The games would take place behind closed doors when safe to do so.

Teams have been given until Friday to register their opinions.

So an uncompleted League can allow Clubs to finish in a place to qualify for play offs, but an incomplete League can not give a final finishing place ?

Go figure

So do that mean then ppg to get final placing for playoffs ?
Personally perhaps this is the time that they add another rule to the book on letís says80% games played league decided on ppg , at Least  itíll stop all this voting /delays to decide.

Yes,
I think that's the way forward......can see with potential future waves of this or other viruses and the ever increasing threat of wetter weather, that having a contingency plan in place, that has previously been agreed on, would be sensible.

Would seem to be positive for Lynn.
A vote for play offs is presumably a vote for PPG (?)

So top 7 likely to vote for it in NL and bottom 4 against which leaves the 11 in the middle plus 4 from N/S

How do you play football if there is still social distancing.

Maybe players, staff and officials will be tested before games and then self isolate before and after and play games behind closed doors (?)

Apparently the EFL are still working on the basis of 2 being promoted to league 2 from NL, provided EFL manage to complete fixtures, if not then Stevenage will be reprieved and only one up from NL.

France:


"The French football season will not be allowed to resume, the country's prime minister has said.

"The 2019-2020 season of professional sports, especially that of football, will not be able to resume," Edouard Philippe said.

All other professional sporting seasons will also be cancelled".

The medical chief of FIFA has said no Football should take place before late Aug/early Sept at the earliest.   Surely English Football wonít go against that advice.  If they do can see themselves being wide open to legal issues

just proves that all premier division interested in is money. Couldn't care less about people's health and a 2nd peak shame on them.

Yes, saw the French statement earlier today and very pleased to see it...some clarity and leadership at last.
Should bring everyone to their senses and in line and should hopefully alter the National League poll results re play offs and just mean it is a straight decision from Premier league down , to go with either null and void or PPG
