BRAINTREE Town are unlikely to find out the final outcome of their National League South season until the end of next week, at the earliest.

The Iron's 2019-20 campaign was ended prematurely last month, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The vast majority of National League clubs were represented at a board meeting on Tuesday where clubs from all three divisions discussed what should happen, with promotion issues in particular discussed.

It is possible that the three divisions could follow in the same fashion as the rest of the non-league pyramid and expunge all results and that is currently seen as the most likely outcome.

A points per game outcome has also been muted but the National League are unable to make progress on any clear decisions until more is discovered about how the EFL campaign is completed.

There are question marks still over how many clubs should be promoted from both the National League and also the National League South and National League South and whether or not play-offs should take place, once it is safe for football to re-start.

Braintree are placed 21st, in the National League South table but it has already been confirmed that there will be no relegation from step two.

The National League wrote to its clubs to invite them to share their views on the feasibility of continuing with the play-offs.

As it stands, all matches have to be played before 1 June unless the National League seeks an extension from the FA Council.
