Swindon Supermarine chairman Jez Webb believes his side have played their final match of the 2019-20 season due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The Webb’s Wood outfit currently sit in fourth place in Southern Premier South and were in a fantastic chance of reaching the play-offs.

But with the Coronavirus outbreak sending the world into lockdown, the future of all sporting events are unlikely to resume anytime soon.

Southern League clubs have voted unanimously to end the season now but are awaiting on a decision from the National League, who would prefer to resume the season at some point.

Webb himself hailed a fantastic season so far for Marine and revealed the club would have been perfectly poised to take promotion had they achieved it.

However, Webb also believes ending the season now is probably the correct decision bearing in mind the circumstances.

Webb told Your Sport’s Nick Taylor: “I think it has been handled very well by FA, the Southern League, I think the government have done a great job and done things at the right time.

“When you really sit back and look at what’s going on, probably a lot of football fans won’t agree but I think football is totally unimportant.

“Personally, how is it going to pan out? I don’t think we’ll kick another ball, I really don’t think we’ll kick another ball this season.

“I wouldn’t like to predict what the Southern League will decide but I think the season is over. My gut feeling is that the season is over and I think it probably should be.”
