ALL football in England below National League level will end immediately and all results will be "expunged", the Football Association has announced.

This means that there will be no promotion or relegation in these divisions.

Salisbury FC play in the Southern League, which is step three six of the National League System (NLS).

Several other teams in the area are in the Wessex League Premier Division or Division One, which sit in steps five and six respectively.

The same will happen in the women's game below the Women's Super League and Championship level.

A statement from the FA said: "We have been working collaboratively with the National League System (NLS), the women’s football pyramid and the wider grassroots game since the outbreak of COVID-19 on how to conclude the 2019-20 season in the most appropriate way possible.

"These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game and in consultation across key stakeholders. Our primary concern will always be for the safety and welfare of clubs, players, staff, officials, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time.

"Today’s steps take into account the financial impact during this uncertain period, whilst considering the fairest method on how the sporting outcomes for the season will be decided with the integrity of the leagues in mind."

As a results, the FA and the National League system have "reached a consensus" that the 2019-20 season will now be brought to an end, and all results will be expunged.

This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between NLS steps three to six, and no promotion to NLS step two.

These decisions will also apply to the leagues and clubs who play at NLS step seven.

The statement from the FA added: "Furthermore, we can now confirm that we have decided that all grassroots football is concluded for the 2019-20 season. This will allow the game to move forward and to commence planning for next season.

"Our County Football Associations (CFAs) will be supporting grassroots leagues over the coming days to determine how they should close out their current competitions."
