YORK City have made a "strong case" about how the season may be brought to a close following the National League's request for the season to be ended as soon as possible.

The coronavirus pandemic has brought professional sport throughout the country to a standstill in a bid to combat the spread.

As of yet, no official decisions have been made by football's top leagues on whether the season will go ahead.

Though in a recent statement to clubs issued by the National League, they called for the current campaign to close "as soon as possible".

Whether the 2019/20 season will be declared null and void or the final standings, and thus promotion and relegation, will be decided by an average points per game method, is still unclear.

As things stand, York City are top of the Vanarama National League North table on 66 points after 34 matches, with eight league games still to play.

King's Lynn Town, the Minstermen's promotion rivals for the majority of the campaign, are second on 64 points, having played two fewer league games than York.

In a brief statement published on the club's official website, York City said: "Although the club doesn't typically comment on speculation, this is a unique situation.

"We want to clarify that we are yet to receive official information from the National League around completion of the season.

"However, we would like to take this opportunity to assure fans that the club has made a strong case regarding how the season may be brought to a close, in light of York City FC's position in the league.

"In the meantime, stay safe and we will wait for official news and keep fans up to date as and when we receive information."
