AFC Fylde will vote in favour of the National League’s proposal to end the 2019/20 campaign without fulfilling the remaining fixtures.

Clubs in the National League, National League North and South have been given until May 7 to submit their vote.

Should the League’s resolution pass, a second vote would then take place to determine the outcomes of the season.

The Coasters currently sit inside the National League relegation zone, four points adrift of safety.

Fylde chairman David Haythornthwaite, who has previously suggested the season should be declared null and void with no promotion or relegation, has confirmed the club’s intention to vote in favour of the League’s resolution.

He told The Gazette: “It’s very controversial because the National League are asking for us to vote on whether the season should end now.

“If the clubs vote for the season to end, the National League will then come up with a number of options for clubs to vote on regarding how the season should finish – should it be declared null and void, should it be decided by points-per-game, should there be no relegation … etc.”
