I see that clubs have 28 days to vote....... hopefully everyone votes within a couple of days otherwise it will be chaotic.

Interesting that resolution one needs 75% of the combined step 1 and 2, so 50 or 51 of the 67 clubs (depending on their rounding rules). If the N/S are as unified on ending their tier as has been suggested, would only need 7 or 8 of the NL to side with it to pass.

Some of the bigger clubs with deeper pockets in the NL whoíve stated they want to carry on, might hold off on voting until the end of the window.

At present, National League clubs will continue to play the season as planned.

Step 1 matches will carry on as scheduled.

Step 2 fixtures will resume from Saturday onwards.

Clubs have until February 28th to vote on the resolutions to end the season.


Who will be the first club in steps 1& 2 to tell the NL to shove it where the sun donít shine and refuse to play with no financial backing? The financial backing that the NL board told clubs was all in place.

I'm more interested in what Lynn's response will be. If Step one carries on, and Lynn does not have the money to be able to do this, what happens?

Budget cut?

Roll the dice and pray that the loans on offer are converted to grants?

There can't be that many options available, can there?

I think Lynn, Dover etc will have to vote against Resolution 1.

Resolution 1 needs a majority of 75% to get through. If it fails then steps don't decide their own fate.....ie then both steps 1 and 2 continue or it is all null and void, depending on result of Resolution 4.

NLN and NLS votes are worth 4points per league and NL sides votes are worth 1 point each. Resolution 4 only needs over 50%to pass. So if NLN and NLS vote to  end season, that's 8 points, so would need Dover, Lynn and  6 more sides from NL to vote to end season and then everything would be null and void...(that's provided Resolution 1 fails)

Hopefully that's a fair summary.......bit of a head scratcher

Have to say this is utter madness. Steps one and two should simply be suspended until it's resolved.

AFC Fylde will vote to continue playing the 2020/21 season.

"Having received public funds to cover the loss of gate revenue in the first part of the season, we are of the opinion that we have a moral obligation to our fans and community to continue."

Looks like North and South Clubs have made their mind up.  Hardly surprising that clubs donít want to spend money some may not have.

17 National League North & South clubs have released a joint statement:

"Clubs who are unable to commit to fixtures should continue to have their season held in suspense by the league and do so without fear of sanctions."

Well looking at the replies on the link in mallard post......the hypocrisy from owners/chairman is what clouds the whole issue.......why do Darlington Fc quote player staff safety as their main concern when they're quite prepared to play an FA Trophy match with no testing........but not a league match???
Surely unsafe is unsafe......no matter what the name of the competition, no matter where your standing is in the league and no matter what your financial situation is.... :dontknow:

It always was going to be. Has nothing to do with player safety, and about who wants promotion. In North/South vast majority are not fussed about promotion, seeing there's no relegation they're happy for season to end. The bigger clubs (or clubs with money that can ride this out for a season/two) that don't want to waste another year at that level, are desperate to continue.

Same again in National League. I'd say only Dagenham/Lynn/Wealdstone/Weymouth/Dover/Barnet would be happy with season ending. Everyone else will want to continue, because the play offs are within reach, and the chance of getting into League 2. Yeovil/Woking are both towards lower end, but both have the financial backing to have a push for play offs still. Altrincham sensibly for their long term future of club would want to stop, but they're 3rd and have a wonderful dream of getting into League 2 so they won't stop. All about short-termism this.

If either leagues continue and the loans are taken on, this will be 100% something clubs moan about in 36 months time that it's crippling them. And I would have no sympathy.
