POOLE Town and Wimborne’s respective Southern League South campaigns have officially been ended by the Football Association, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The FA today released a statement that they were able to “build a consensus amongst their leagues” and have decided to make the decision regarding the entire campaign.

Dolphins and Magpies play at step three of the National League system. The FA announced steps three to six will end and all results will be expunged.

The statement read: “The FA and NLS steps three to six have reached a consensus that their 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.”

Poole occupied ninth in Southern League South, while Wimborne were 15th.

Wessex League clubs, who operate at step five and six, have also had their season ended and results expunged.
