THE SOUTHERN League have announced they want to "terminate the 2019-20 season immediately" due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, a final decision is yet to be fully ratified due to the National League, the top tier of the non-league pyramid, still debating whether to try and restart their campaign at a later date.

All FA football in England is currently suspended.

Following a series of conference calls, the Southern, Isthmian and Northern Premier Leagues are "unanimous" in wanting to end the season now, with final placings either decided via average points per game or by declaring it null and void. No official decision can be taken until the National League decide how they wish to proceed.

Wimborne Town currently sit 15th in the table with 37 points from their 33 games.

Poole Town are ninth, but could jump up the table significantly if a points average system is introduced, having played fewer games than all-but one other team in the division.

Below the Southern League, the Non League Paper last night reported that leagues such as the Wessex would stop immediately, but that is yet to be officially confirmed.
