Thatcham Town manager Danny Robinson has admitted that the Football Association’s decision to null and void non-league football is “heartbreaking and gut-wrenching”.

The Kingfishers were sitting top of the Southern League Division 1 South table with just 11 league games remaining.

However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the FA has come to the decision that the league – along with a number of other divisions – will have no conclusion and that all previous results will be expunged.

Leagues at Steps 3 to 6 have reached an agreement that the 2019/20 season will be ended with immediate effect.

Speaking about the announcement, Robinson said: “We’re obviously gutted because we were on the cusp of getting to a level where Thatcham have never been before.

“It’s been taken away from us and it’s heartbreaking and gut-wrenching, but I understand it was a very difficult decision for the FA to make.”
