Breaking News: League Two Clubs Vote to End the 2019/20 Campaign

Walsall's 2019/20 Sky Bet League Two campaign will not restart with the final league positions being decided via the use of an unweighted points-per-game system.
Following a series of votes, including various regulation changes and a final vote on the curtailment of the campaign, manager Darrell Clarke can now begin to prepare for the 2020/21 campaign as the immediate future is now set.

The question of whether to play out our season or quit has just been voted on. Only one vote in favour of playing on (FGR) surprised by that. So L2 season is done.

Shame, but we’ll focus on the new one, whenever that comes and in whatever shape it take (sic).
- Dale Vince

Officials representing clubs from up and down the nation held an emergency general meeting earlier today and were finally able to come to terms on an agreement which will see the season come to an end.

According to a Tweet posted by Forest Green Rovers owner Dale Vince, his was the only club in League Two to vote for a resumption, with the rest agreeing to end the campaign here and now, with Play-Off dates yet to be confirmed.

The season curtailment means Swindon Town will be crowned champions with Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle joining them in moving to League One, whilst Cheltenham, Town, Exeter City, Northampton Town and Colchester United securing Play-Off places.

The Saddlers, who were in a strong spell of form, before the season was suspended, will secure a mid-table finish with promotion and relegation being applied as usual with the Play-Offs set to take place soon.

Relegation is yet to be confirmed as Stevenage currently sit at the foot of the table, whilst Macclesfield Town (23rd) are facing a further points deduction after once again failing to pay their players and staff on time.
