As you can see in the Announcements folder the FA have announced this afternoon that this season will be declared void for all leagues at Steps 3 to 7. If you go that page, there is a pdf to open and read more about it..

Meanwhile, the SWPL will make a further statement later today. Cups are not covered by this FA news.

The only sensible decision that could be taken, what football match is worth risking a life for?
It's unfortunate for the clubs who have invested in the game at our level, but one would hope that they understand the situation we are all involved in and accept the fact that it's nobodys fault.

Coronavirus has no respect for health wealth age or happiness so hard that it is it just has to be. Such a shame for the top teams good news for the bottom teams

Am I missing something? Nobody is saying that football should be taking place anywhere in the country at this time or at any time in the near future because of this terrible pandemic.

We certainly feel that the action taken was in good faith and for the safety of all concerned not just those of us who love sport.
There is no way that anyone can forecast the end date of this virus, especially if the idiots who choose to ignore professional advice continue with their "it won't happen to me " attitude, and treat the advice with cotempt.
With no guaranteed end date, the F.A. had little option but to expunge this seasons results and start from scratch next season,
Imagine the outcry if the F.A. said the season will restart in whatever guise on a date in August and the pandemic is still with us, what then?  finish this season whenever possible and cancel next?
 No we wouldn't be over the moon if our team was top of the league and missed out on promotion, but we would accept it with good grace and concentrate on helping those in the community with real problems.
If football is not ressurected in the near future, has anyone got a chrystal ball that can identify the date for the distant future ?

I know, difficult to fathom a team spending alleged fortunes and not being able to take promotion.

Unnecessary post. No doubt he will achieve it next year as this year will be consigned to history. 

Unlike £odmin who probably £pent as much in their time at the £op but never had the ambition to £est themse£ves. 

That will always bring a smile to a lot of football followers.

No problem with either Helston or Steve Massey. Got a lot of time for his thoughts.ambition,vision, and the direction he is intent on taking the club in. Was aimed at club (s) who have probably spent equally large sums of money over the last decade or so to no clear purpose.

Hypothetical question which may not be as unrealistic as it seems - what if this pandemic continues to prevent football from restarting until say February of next year - what do you think should happen to the leagues then? Got a feeling February next year might be ambitious......

£6000 from Helston FC going to charity, let's hope Bodmin follow suit 👍

Well done Helston ! that should put the lid on the suggestion that next season will see you bankrupt because of your investments this season past.
What a lot of naughty boys you have there, running up fines of £6,000 ! or were they just contributing to one heck of an end of season bash.
Are there other clubs able to do this sort of thing ? if so lets hear about it. 
No excuses ! if correct it appears that this money comes from the players, not a wealthy benefactor as some are likely to suggest.

So, if season 2019/20 is expunged, would any suspensions hanging over from season 2018/19 that were served at the beginning of this (expunged) season, now be reinstated?

Similarly, are any suspensions that are still pending (or yellow cards that have been accumulated, but have not yet reached this point) wiped from the record?

If they do reinstate, that would be ridiculous and hopefully the County FAs will see it as sensible not to enforce them again. Common sense surely for once should prevail!

The suspensions that are current will carry over. Last seasons have been served so won’t be done again!

How can you be suspended if the season doesn't count? That makes no sense. 

Expunged  means obliterated completely all data and records do not count so that must include misdemeanors for the said season, it would be illegal to suspend  anyone. Can't happen .

Quite simply because the FA have been very careful with their wording in stating 'all results are expunged'. No where have I seen 'the season doesn't count' as I would envisage the FA will use the season's performance of teams for 20/21 FA Competitions e.g. FA Cup.

Given the careful wording I would also say all suspensions stand with no opening for clubs thinking they can be reimbursed for 19/20 fines. 

On a personal note to those leagues / clubs considering legal action against the FA. Wake up, look at what's going on around you. Now over 1,000 deaths in The UK from COVID-19. Is football really that important in the scheme of things!!

In short no it isn't, and the attitude displayed by clubs who advocate taking legal action against the F.A. show just what their priorities are when it comes to considering the wellbeing of their supporters.
Perhaps they should show a bit of humility towards others, and if they don't understand the meaning of the word put them in touch with Helston F.C.

No we're not Helston supporters but we genuinely feel that they have set the standard for others to follow

As I posted earlier many may well be assisting the community but choose not to publicise it.

This is all getting a bit tedious to be honest - NOT ONE PERSON IS DISPUTING THAT THE PANDEMIC IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING - people are just voicing their opinion about what happens if and when football can resume. Is that so difficult for all to comprehend?

Why not? surely that would be a way of creating goodwill within a community, there's no harm in letting people know that you care about them.
All too often we complain that local interest in football is on the wane and Joe Bloggs does everything or the club would fold, well now could be the time when those who have helped their community have an opportunity to show their worth.
If you've done something to improve the lives of others lets celebrate that, there no shame in not being able to help in the present climate, but if you are able, and you have done so, spread the good news, we could do with some ! !
See the reaction that greeted Helstons gesture and you will see that a club who have taken a lot of criticism on this forum, have won over at least some of their critics, us included, and certainly the people of Helston.

Totally agree We Two, the football community is often vilified, so some good positive publicity can only be of benefit and you never know the remaining cynics, on here, who find it impossible to see a positive gesture for what it is, may even start to feel good too.

The details/records which are being expunged are those of the various Leagues and not those of the FA or County FAs. Discipline is not part of a League's responsibility so any suspensions not yet served will carry over to next season - whenever that might be! The number of accumulated yellow cards is not carried over; each season starts from scratch - unless players have already reached a trigger point for automatic suspension which has not been fully served.

The way we see things is that a positive attitude will always come to the top eventually.
There are plenty of cynics in this world who will assume that because you haven't told them what's happening they will assume that nothing is happening, and a golden opportunity to show the good side of the game we all love will have been missed.
Nobody wants someone coming on here bragging we did this and that and they did nothing, that's not the idea at all, just let people know that we are not the insular uncaring fraternity of people that some see us as.

Positivity will always come to the top...always, and the cynics are always there as well...always.

Human nature. 

Nobody has come on here bragging, merely stating what they have done for their community...well done.

Others choose not too, but the ones they have helped - and are still helping are appreciative of the help.

Maybe they don't want people to know the assistance they are receiving. 

Everybody has a choice to tell the world...or not.

No need to identify individuals, just that we have invested in our community will do to show the doubters that we do care.

Only seen one club come up trumps, and we all know who that is.
It proves the point really that that the reaction they received was popular in the local area and beyond and other clubs would benefit from just making it known that they care about what happens in their community.
At the end of the day it was just a suggestion that an opportunity existed that would benefit the perceived nature of football communities in general by some who wrongly see us as a problem rather than an assett..

Don't know that local football clubs are perceived in that light, never heard it said.

I can say that our club has supported many organisations, clubs and individuals over the years and continue to do so without the scourge that is Covid -19
