The FA have released a statement regarding the Steps 3-6 of the National League system.

Which stated the following: "Our alliance and leagues committees have now considered the large amount of data and information submitted by clubs across the National League System (NLS) Steps 3-6 as part of a survey to gather views on the continuation or conclusion of the 2020-21 league season, in addition to the information set out in the Government’s roadmap this week. 

"The results of the survey showed that over 76 per cent of all clubs across Steps 3-6 indicated a preference to curtail the 2020-21 league season if it could not be restarted with limited spectator numbers and hospitality before 1 April 2021."

The Isthmian and Southern Combination League has been suspended since January.

It means that all Sussex clubs in the Isthmian Premier (Worthing, Horsham, Lewes and Bognor), Isthmian South East (Hastings, East Grinstead, Chichester, Whitehawk, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill) have all seen their season come to an end.

In addition all Sussex sides in the Southern Combination League Premier and Division One have will also not be able to resume their seasons.

It will come as a disappointment to all Sussex sides, but especially Worthing, Hastings and Saltdean, who were top of the Isthmian Premier, Isthmian South East and Southern Combination League respectively.
