The Trident Leagues (Northern Premier, Isthmian and Southern Leagues) say they believe the current season should be declared null and void.

The leagues say the matter was discussed at length by the FA’s Alliance Committee earlier this week. Step 3 and 4 clubs will be asked by The FA whether they believe the 2020/21 season should be cancelled, and if not, their suggested alternative.

As part of a statement, the league add: “Independent of that survey, all three of the Trident League’s boards hold the view that the season should cease immediately and be declared null and void. The ultimate decision lies with The FA Council, following a proposal made by the Alliance Committee but no proposal will be drafted until clubs’ views have been collated and assessed.

“In the meantime, the Northern Premier League is postponing all fixtures up to and including Saturday 6th March since there is no suggestion that the national lockdown will be lifted prior to this date. The league will continue to provide its member clubs with updates as and when it is able to do so.”
