Chester have confirmed their vote to null and void the season.

The Blues are currently 2nd in the National League North table, with 28 points from 17 games.

A statement from the club today begins: “This has been an extremely difficult decision but one that has been taken solely to ensure the continuation of the club our supporters have worked so hard to build since 2010. While the overwhelming desire of the board was to complete the season, given the efforts and sacrifices of our players, management, staff, volunteers and fans, it is with regret we no longer believe this is possible without the grants that clubs were assured would be in place until it was safe for crowds to return.

“As the custodians of the football club, we must act responsibly to safeguard its future, and ending the season is the only certain way to do this, given the options available to us, and will help us recover from the unprecedented financial challenges of the past 12 months. There remains a high level of uncertainty about COVID-19 and its impact on football at all levels, and it is on the basis of that uncertainty that we have reached this decision.

“We submitted four questions to the National League on Wednesday which we hoped would assist us in this process but still have yet to receive a response.”
