Notts County’s board have expressed their pleasure at the decision to continue the current National League season.
The Magpies, beaten in last season’s play-off final, are aiming to get back to the EFL at the second attempt, and currently sit 3rd, with games in hand on leaders Torquay United.
A statement from the club’s board reads: “We are very pleased that the league’s consultation of member clubs in relation to the outcomes of the 2020-21 campaign will result in step one of the National League continuing. This, we feel, is a conclusion which protects the competition’s integrity and rewards the efforts of all clubs who have imparted great effort into the season so far.
“We’re also delighted for our loyal supporters who have backed us so staunchly from afar. It is noted that the National League have now asked the Football Association to ratify the outcome of this vote and that dialogue is set to take place between the league and FA regarding promotion.
“We look forward to hearing more in due course. For now, however, we would like to congratulate Neal Ardley and the team on their excellent recent form and wish them well for Saturday’s exciting derby against Chesterfield.”
