Barnsley Women’s FC, one of many to sign a joint letter to the FA, last night put forward a three-point plan aimed at saving the season for hundreds of football clubs.
Club chairman, Paul Thompson, said: “Thorough consideration must be given to the impact of voiding a season and expunging the results, taking into account what the affected clubs are saying.
“Our Three Point Plan is a fair and equitable plan that can be applied consistently across the whole of the Football Pyramid, where leagues are unable to complete the 2019/20 season.”
Point One – League Tables
If the season cannot be completed, record all unplayed fixtures as 0-0 draws, leaving final tables in the same order as using a points per game system.
Point Two – Promotion
Promotion should then take place in the normal manner, based on the league tables established in Point One.
Point Three – Relegation
No relegation should take place. If there is promotion but no relegation, most leagues will remain the same size.
