Swindon Supermarine boss Lee Spalding is bracing himself for the current Southern League season to be scrapped because of the Coronavirus outbreak.
With both the Southern League and National League favouring ending the current season, it looks as if their member clubs have kicked their final balls of the season.
All that now remains is for the FA to decide whether the current league positions stand, a points per game average is used to finalise the standings or to null and void the season.
Spalding hopes that the current league positions will be allowed to stand although he fears the whole campaign will be deemed null and void.
“From a football perspective it is massively disappointing after the season we have had and the position we were in,” said Spalding.
“The way things are escalating and the way things are going I just don’t think (finishing the season) would have been possible.
“If I am honest I can see the season being null and void to be honest.
“From what I have read I think a lot of the clubs are struggling financially to pay the contracted players.
“I think the only way for the league to really sort this out is to finish the season early in the position we are in.
“I think we are the same position that a lot of other clubs are in.”
