Southern, Isthmian and Northern Leagues (feeders into the National League/Conference) have begun the process to terminate the season now. Up in the air how the season will be concluded and what happens with promotion/relegation etc

They can't void unless the whole pyramid does, otherwise what happens with those relegated from above?

From reading the statement, the pressing issue appears to be that they need to end the season due to financial pressure on clubs otherwise. And they're happy to go along with whatever the NL decide about how to conclude the season i.e. void if that's what the NL do, PPG if the NL do decide to complete the season in some way.

Sort of inevitable in the semi-professional leagues as unfortunate as it is.

PPG would be ideal for us if the football league eventually have to go down that route.

I know it’s the Daily Star but it looks like the National League are going to call time on the current season and promote Barrow and Harrogate to L2. So, if the EFL season doesn’t conclude they’ll be 26 teams in L2 next season.

That's not in the National League's gift without the cooperation of the Football League. The National League can say "These are the top two and we think they should go up" but if the Football League doesn't conclude then the League could just say no promotion or relegation this season and keep it to the current 23 teams (or more likely accept the top one from the National League to make it up to 24). So even if the Star's report is accurate as to what the National League will decide (which is just speculation on their part), their conclusions are bollocks.

Surely the other clubs that have a chance of promotion will take legal action over that?

Probably. Although that's if they can afford it, a lot of NL clubs are going to be absoutely brassic, laying off staff etc already, not sure they're going to have money to throw around on legal challenges?

Well that's a very good point as well. Messy isn't it?

Forest Green put all their staff, including playing staff, on furlough, using the 80% wage scheme:

Not sure if they're the first league club to do this, damn sure they won't be the last

Leeds players and staff voted for a wage deferral.
The government scheme is up to a max of £2500 a month so cant see many outside of league 2 and lower taking advantage of that.

Think I read Exeter have agreed to 50% wage cut, but may have that wrong. Barca in talks about 70% pay cut too.

Might apply to quite a few L1 players as well, esp if the alternative is 50-75% cuts or even nothing. But you're right, can't see it being used in Championship and above, I was mainly thinking about L1/L2/Conference really
