Of Barrow’s remaining games they still had to play 4 teams that have already beaten them this season, one of these is second place Harrogate so those 4 points could easily disappear. My own personal view is that if the season isn’t finished then promotion and relegation should be scrapped. Either way will be opening a legal minefield. 

Even scrapping the season wouldn't stop the numerous legal challenges from all the clubs currently in the promotion places, Liverpool being the most obvious one. Whether this will be a problem confined to this country or not will be interesting to see.

The three divisions of England's National League have been suspended indefinitely because of coronavirus.

The competition had been originally postponed until 3 April but that has now been extended following a board meeting on Tuesday.

It comes after all non-league football in steps three to seven was ended immediately on Thursday with no promotion or relegation.

The National League said it was looking at "how best to conclude" the season.

More to follow.

Further statement....

The National League said it was looking at "how best to conclude" the season.

But it is not yet known if the competition, which is made up of the National League, National League North and National League South, will also be cancelled with all results expunged.

"The National League is currently obtaining specialist legal advice, is consulting regularly with the Football Association and other stakeholders, and is committed to involving its member clubs in a pending decision on how best to conclude the 2019-20 season," a statement said.

More than 100 clubs have sent an open letter to the FA, calling for it to "urgently" reconsider the decision to expunge seasons from the men's seventh tier and the women's third tier downwards.

The decision is yet to be ratified by the FA Council.

Barrow are four points clear at the top of the National League, with fifth-tier clubs having between seven and 10 league fixtures remaining to complete the season.

So 2 meetings in the last couple of weeks and basically nothing decided 

They decided today to extend the current suspension which expired this weekend.

Makes sense to play it by ear until they know more.

One we thing we have in abundance right now is time

Belgium have awarded Bruge the title as they have scrapped their season.

I don't know much about the league in Belgium so don't know how far they were clear at teatime. Has anything been decided on their relegation places?

They were one game away from finishing the regular season, then they have this stupid play-off competition to decide final places. I don't think they've actually decided anything other than naming the champions.
