Chelmsford City believe that some good has come of recent developments in the form of increased co-operation between clubs.
The National League South Clarets said in an update to supporters regarding the decision not to allow a continuation of the season at Step 2:
“The club was supportive of the action by those that wanted to continue and was fully engaged in the process. In the end, the Alliance Committee were against the proposed solution and ratified the previous vote of a null and void season; further ratification of this by The FA is expected this week.
“The main positive from all this process has been the great contacts made with those running other clubs at our level that will enable us to more easily share learnings and work collaboratively in the future for the good of the league as a whole.
“With the season now declared over, the club will be retaining players on furlough, releasing others and starting to prepare for next season.”
