The Alliance Committee has today announced their support of the National League decision to null and void the 20/21 National League North & South seasons, subject to FA Council approval.  

The FA published the following statement this afternoon:

Subject to FA Council approval, the Alliance Committee decided:

a. To support the outcome of the National League resolution resulting in:

• The continuation of Step 1
• That the 2020/21 season is declared null and void at Step 2 with no promotion or relegation from Step 2 (or relegation from Step 1)

b. Consideration was also given to an alternative sporting solution at Step 2 in line with a proposal submitted by certain Step 2 clubs that wished to continue playing. The Alliance Committee rejected the proposal, and any alternative, in the interest of the integrity of the National League System. Further reasons for this decision will be communicated directly to clubs in due course.


AFC Fylde Football Club are disappointed by this decision and will be issuing a Club Statement in due course.
