Pressure is mounting on Non-League’s top two tiers today to decide on the future of the 2019-20 season as The Non-League Paper hits newsstands amid the escalating coronavirus crisis.
National League bosses could make their minds up within 24 hours, with an emergency board meeting called for Monday to either fall into line with the rest of Non-League from Step 3 & 4 down and terminate the season or go with the professional game and hope to resurrect it at a later date.
Throw in the growing number of furious clubs lobbying the Football Association within hours of the season being expunged from the BetVictor-sponsored Step 3 & 4 competitions down, a key FA Council meeting by video conference to ratify the controversial decision this week and Sunday’s NLP is an unmissable read with all the latest news, views, demands and pleas from Non-League’s stakeholders.
In print and online as a full digital replica, The NLP’s news pages are the only place to get the big picture in one place since the growing public health crisis led to the suspension of football three weeks ago and as European football’s governing body Uefa admitted this weekend that season 2019/20 could still “be lost” across the continent.
