How non league teams could still win promotion after leagues get voided? Well there might just be a way that could happen.
Huge news broke out this week that the Football Association has null and voided leagues at Steps 3 to 6 and results are expunged.
This comes as a huge blow to many teams who were on course or already had promotion sealed, just like Jersey Bulls and Vauxhall Motors.
The Channel Islands outfit had won all 27 of their matches in the Combined Counties Football League Division One and were 20 points clear at the top.
As it stands, they will not be able to go up, they will play in the same league once the new season goes ahead which is still scheduled for August.
Sports Journalist James White however has revealed that he’s been speaking to the chairman of Guernsey FC from the Isthmian League, and he’s said there are two instances in which the Jersey Bulls could go up.
One, if the EFL still choose to replace Bury FC, who dropped out earlier on in the 2019/20 season due to financial turmoil.
If they were to replace Bury, they would need to promote a side from the National League, if that was to happen, and the National League wanted to replace the team they lost to go up to the EFL, then that would cause a knock-on effect further down the football pyramid, meaning further promotions would be required.
One of those promotions could filter down the Combined Counties, meaning it could see Jersey Bulls go up.
The other option is as the coronavirus continues to wreak havoc to English football at all levels, if any non league club decide that they can’t deal with the financial turmoil this is causing and can’t continue or feel the need to drop down a league or two, that could cause further adjustments.Like what the Fan Banter have on offer?
