NATIONAL LEAGUE STATEMENT | Outcome of written resolutions

The Vanarama National League will continue to operate for the remainder of the season, after clubs voted against the resolution to null and void the season.

The Vanarama National League North and South seasons, however, have been curtailed with immediate effect. 

Member Clubs were asked to vote on four resolutions to consider the outcome of the 2020/21 season.

Wrexham AFC elected to vote on the first resolution, voting in favour of the two steps of the National League determining their own futures, rather than a combined vote.

We chose to abstain on the other votes regarding the continuing of the season, however, having been excluded from the Sports Winter Survival Package for National League Clubs.

Nevertheless, after the first resolution passed, 13 Vanarama National League teams, of the 20 who returned their vote, voted against declaring the season null and void.

Seven teams voted in favour, with two votes still to be cast, but with the 51% majority already reached for continuing the season, we will now operate until the end of the 2020/21 season.

In the step two vote, 15 National League North and nine National League South clubs voted in favour of curtailing the season, and so fixtures at that level have ceased with immediate effect.

A National League statement confirmed: "The Board will take the resolution outcome to the Football Association for ratification. This will include dialogue regarding promotion and relegation."
