Wrexham captain Shaun Pearson admits he does not envy National League chiefs having to decide what will happen to teams at both ends of the table after announcing the season has been suspended indefinitely.

The campaign had originally been halted until April 3 at the earliest because of the coronavirus pandemic but a league statement on Tuesday read: “The Board has taken the decision to suspend the National League, National League North and National League South competitions indefinitely.”

There has been speculation on what way promotion and relegation will be decided, with the current table standing and using a points-per-game calculation among the suggestions, or even null and voiding the season.

Wrexham, 20th in the fifth tier and just one point above the relegation zone, have nine games remaining but it now appears the Reds have played their last match.

Captain Pearson says Wrexham – like other teams – would have their own argument for what happens next if the season does not resume.

“Everybody will have their own way of looking at it and have their own argument,” said Pearson.

“At the top, whether you can catch the team in front of you or at the bottom, whether you can stay ahead of the team behind you.

“At the bottom, Fylde have won their last couple and they will be arguing that they are just coming into form, Ebbsfleet have picked up.”
