Felixstowe & Walton United faced the prospect of being relegated, if the Football Association had opted to go down the average points-per-game route to decide the outcome of the 2019-20 season.
As it happened, the FA chose to expunge all results for the campaign, so making it null and void, with no relegation or promotion.
Seasiders boss Stuart Boardley believed that his side would have avoided relegation from the Isthmian League North, if the season had not been called off due to coronavirus pandemic.
“I think it was the right decision,” said Boardley, with reference to the FA’s decision to expunge all results for the season.
“It was really important that they made the decision now, so clubs can plan ahead.”
