Non league football fans at Steps 3-6 can expect an update on the conclusion of the current season once the Prime Minister Boris Johnson has revealed his route map as to how the current Covid-19 restrictions may be lifted.

NPL clubs have received an update from the FA and the League, the appropriate committees having met to discuss the results of the survey completed by all but two of the 226 clubs, asking for their opinion on what should be the outcome of this currently suspended season.

The FA say “given that any such update from the Government on 22 February may provide the Committees with additional relevant information to help determine the preferred route forward, they have agreed to reconvene after this date. In addition, the Alliance Committee are also conscious of the ongoing process the National League (Steps 1 and 2) are undertaking and the potential impact this could have on any actions the Committee may choose to take. We will provide an update in due course.”

Matlock’s last league game was the 1-0 win at Grantham Town on October 20 and in total, the Gladiators have completed only six of their currently scheduled 42 league match programme.
