Shocking decision IMHO and devastating for clubs who had put all of their investment and focus into e.g. a successful promotion. It does save one of my non league teams though (Lewes FC) who were in free fall. And I wouldn’t mind a wiping of the 2019/20 campaign across European leagues and competitions. Obvs.Hungerford Town won’t now be relegated although they are a bit adrift at the bottom of the league. Tough on Wealdstone though.
I don’t think the decision to not promote from Step 2 has been taken yet. King’s Lynn and York are in a similar situation to the stones.Hungerford Town won’t now be relegated although they are a bit adrift at the bottom of the league. Tough on Wealdstone though.
I have been to Hitchin quite a few times in the past, it's a nice place to watch the game. Always remember a very odd one with my local team Chesham in about 2002 which was a 5-5 draw, you don't see that so often...This might appeal to a few - my local club
HITCHIN RETRO – ENFIELD TICKETS
Posted by ClubAdmin on Friday 5th June 2020
“Tickets” are now on sale for fans to view the screening of our first Hitchin Retro game. Our first game will be the Season 1993-94 Diadora Isthmian League Premier Division clash between Enfield and Hitchin Town, played at Enfield’s Southbury Road ground on Tuesday 28th September 1993.
The game will be made available to view from 19:00 onwards on Tuesday 16th June, and the “tickets”, costing £5 for all Adults and £2 for Teenagers, will be on sale up until 19:00 on the day when the screening will be available.
We hope that fans will get behind this new venture, as we have a number of classic retro games for future screening, including all of the FA Cup classics from the 1990s. Our first game features a dodgy centre back in the No.4 shirt in the Hitchin team – well worth the “admission” money on his own.

I think a lot of football people do support local football where they can. The trouble is, with so many organisations struggling right now - sports clubs, charities, community stuff etc - there isn’t enough money to go round them all. My own ‘economy’ is suffering a bit right now too. Not happy times.
