Reds bosses to put forward proposals for an end to the season as leagues could void results.

In a statement on Friday, the NPL announced that in light of national Covid-19 restrictions, the 2020/2021football season could be terminated with results rendered null and void.

The Trident Leagues, which include the NPL, and the FA’s Alliance Committee have jointly recommended that the season be terminated.

But the final call rests with The FA and they have asked clubs from Steps three and four of The National League System if they want to see games continue after lockdown.

Workington AFC bosses held an emergency meeting via Zoom yesterday afternoon to weigh the options.

Immediately after leaving the meeting Chairman Dave Bowden said: “We feel it is incredibly important to update everyone associated with club on the issues and our thinking as soon as things develop. The impact of this whole situation and serious likelihood of the season ending on the club is wide ranging. It affects our playing staff, fans and sponsors alike.”

One proposal to complete the season was to play a full round of games when play re-commences in March. Bowden said: “This of course would depend very much on a vast improvement in the Covid situation, which is very uncertain.”

Public health is at the forefront of their minds, Bowden said: "But the latest situation surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic for all of us is grave and at no point should safety be compromised."

Club management also discussed aggregating last season's points total with this year or consolidating points per game.

Bowden said: "On behalf of all the board, if the season does end as now seems more than likely, I can’t tell you how disappointed we would be for Danny Grainger, Steve Rudd and all the players who have given their all over the last 2 years.

"None of us could have asked any more from them. It will be an even bigger challenge when the season resumes to maintain this momentum."

Bowden said: "This disappointment extends to our fans, sponsors, staff and volunteers who have been remarkable in their efforts for the club. In the meantime we continue to work on our planning on and off the pitch to resume playing football whenever that may be."
