Maldon and Tiptree manager Wayne Brown believes the decision to end the non-league football season below the National League was made too hastily.
The Football Association confirmed last week that all results in non-league’s steps three to seven will be expunged and promotion and relegation scrapped, following the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jammers are one of more than 60 non-league clubs who have signed an open letter calling for the FA to reconsider their decision.
Maldon are 14 points clear at the top of BetVictor Isthmian League division north with 12 games to play and were clear favourites to go on and lift the title, this season.
But with the campaign now ended by the FA, the Jammers have been denied the chance to earn promotion to the premier division, much to boss Brown’s frustration.
He said: “We’re extremely disappointed with the decision.
“We’ve had a really good season and to have lost only two of 26 games is no mean feat.”
