National Leagues North & South Suspended Empty National Leagues North & South Suspended

National League North & South campaigns suspended

From BBC Football

National League North and National League South have been suspended for two weeks amid discontent over funding.

Several clubs had called for the season to be halted until concerns over loan offers to fund elite non-league sides and Covid-19 testing were addressed.

The decision was taken at a National League board meeting on Friday after a review of feedback from clubs.

All of Saturday's scheduled fixtures have been postponed, and will be rearranged.

Dozens of midweek matches either side of games on 30 January are also off, but the National League is set to continue.

National League clubs started the season thanks to £10m in grants from the government, but are now being offered government loans to continue playing.

However, many have said they are worried about the financial implications of taking on loans to cover costs incurred by the coronavirus pandemic and competing behind closed doors.

Clubs met on Wednesday and were told they would either have to take out loans or suspend their season.

Twelve National League North sides called for the league's "immediate suspension" in a joint statement on Thursday.

National League South club Havant & Waterlooville also went into a self-imposed 10-day isolation break on health and safety grounds, while Concord Rangers and Slough Town also confirmed they would not play.
