Gillingham manager Steve Evans has branded the decision to end the non-league football season as “unprecedented and unfair”
The Football Association confirmed yesterday (Thursday) that seasons for all divisions from Step 3 and below were now over due to the outbreak of coronavirus and that all records from the campaign would be expunged.
It is a decision that has hit clubs in the area hard with Peterborough Sports sitting top of the BetVictor Southern League Premier Central when matches were suspended while Stamford were second in the Northern Premier League South East Division.
And Evans, who cut his teeth in management in the area with the likes of Holbeach and Stamford, has nothing but sympathy for those teams being denied their shot at promotion.
“As a manager who came through non-league, the decision to cancel the season for Steps 3 to 7 is unprecedented and unfair,” he said.
