    The association should simply terminate the season – clubs being promoted from the 1st Division have been determined – Bvcc will be relegated from the premier div and it would be prudent if no other team be relegated this season – the ten team premier div would return to that status by relegating 3 teams at the completion of the 20/21 season.

    Further – the FA cup can be played at the beginning of next season and possibly at that point with more than 50 fans in attendance. Note that the NSC is now closed.

    Players and coaches must be protected and by not terminating the season clubs are forcing players and coaches to train together to remain competitive. This places these individuals in harms way which is both uncaring, unwise and irresponsible.

    Leadership is required and the players and coaches should demand it.
