THE remaining matches in York City's 2019/20 National League North season have been cancelled, the National League have confirmed.

The League revealed that the majority of the 90 per cent of responses it had received from its clubs were in favour of cancelling fixtures for the remainder of the season.

No decision has yet been made on the outcome to the season in regards to final league standings and thus promotion and relegation, with a second vote now expected to take place among clubs to resolve the issue.

In a statement, the National League said that "the options concerning the sporting outcomes of the 2019/20 season remain under careful and timely consideration, and further updates will be given in due course."

York City will be hopeful of securing promotion to the National League given that at the point in which action was stopped, they were top of the National League North table.

The statement added: "The League’s board has chosen to communicate the decision now and before the last few responses are received, which will not change the outcome, to enable clubs to make business decisions with greater clarity as soon as possible."

National League chief executive officer, Michael Tattersall, commented: “At a time when the entire country is wrestling with the devastating impact of Covid-19, the cancellation of the remaining normal season matches brings a degree of certainty to our clubs coping with the business implications of the virus.”

Action across the National League's three divisions have been suspended since March 16 amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has brought sport across the country to a standstill.
