Some non-league football seasons have reportedly been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, according to Essex Senior League side Hashtag United.

They wrote on Twitter: “We have just been advised that after an FA meeting with leagues today, the season has been declared over with immediate effect.

“The decision as to whether the season is declared null/void or if promotion will be awarded is expected soon.”

An official statement is expected to be made soon by the FA, including news on National League sides.

It is thought that the initial cancellations involve Steps 5 and 6.

Hashtag added: “We should clarify that we are talking about our Step here, not the pro game!

“It is season over for us; no idea about Liverpool!”

The FA were due to meet with key figures across non-league football this week to find a resolution as to how to finish the season.

Non-league fixtures were called off on March 16, having initially gone ahead for a week longer than the professional game.
