We should find out today, what is happening concerning football league clubs.  I think the National league will follow suit.
Never keep up with the Joneses, drag them down to your level ...............it's cheaper.

The vote for the FL clubs in League One and Two is tomorrow.

League Two have apparently voted to end the season, but there will be relegation. Bury essentially take up 1 spot, so it's between Stevenage and Macclesfield, pending result of FL inquiry into Macc not paying players.

Expecting National League to follow suit, with play offs... and I believe they will do the same in all 3 National League divisions.

Play Offs for us?

Looks likely national leagues will follow league 1 and 2 and have playoffs so maybe York Street will have another match or 2 just a shame that it's final match will be with no crowd.

Surely something will be put in place for live streaming.

Play-offs will be a logistical nightmare! We've already started moving out of our ground, there'll be no fans anyway, most of the players would need the equivalent of another pre-season to get back fit, Brackley have let most of their players go, Chester have lost their top scorer....

I would imagine they would also have to put in place some kind of club covid protocols like they've done in the Championship / premier league - and also probably test the players / staff twice a week  - all might be a step too far ??
Hope not

I think all clubs at our level will be thinking survival rather than play-offs .   Over the coming months I for see some non-league clubs requesting to move down the pyramid and some others calling it a day .

I'm afraid you're right Pete. Some clubs will not survive.

Sounds like play offs are a no-go, as non-elite sport is currently not allowed by the Government.

Seemingly from elsewhere no play offs for North or South to National League

Jumpers for goalposts!

Clearly Boris & Co would rather prawn sandwich it up rather than engage with the non-elite.
