The letter read: “I hope that this email finds you, your family and colleagues well.

“I am writing to you in response to the decision taken by the National League yesterday to cancel all of their remaining matches.

“As you will no doubt be well aware, Barrow AFC sit top of the Vanarama National League at this conclusion of the league.

“You may also be aware that in 1972, after a vote of number clubs, Barrow AFC were relegated from the Football League, despite finishing clear of the relegation places.

“While I accept that we are in unprecedented times, It would appear that fate has come around and the time is right for Barrow AFC to be reinstated back into the Football League by way of promotion from the National League.

“It is regrettable that such a proud, historic football club as Bury Football Club was wound up and removed from your league earlier this season. But with that in mind it would make perfect sense for Barrow AFC to now take their rightful place back in the Football League, taking Bury’s place.

“The consequences of the decision made by the Football League could change the to of our town for generations. The club is owned and run by local people and to supporters. They have been working tirelessly on and off the field to develop and grow their Performance Centre, and the match day experience for supporters, guests, visiting teams, officials and staff.

“On the field. Ian Evatt and his team have transformed Barrow AFC into a team which is regarded as the best which this town has seen for more than fifty years.

“Barrow-in-Furness has a team and a football club of which it is very proud. To have Football League football back in our town will have significant benefits. The club, and our town, won’t let you down.

“I am asking for the English Football League to do the right thing and to permit Barrow AFC to be promoted back for the 2020/21 season, where they belong.

“I look forward to hearing from you soon.”

    Nothing at all to do with any MP in any constituency, PPG is the simplest solution in an unprecedented situation.
    The remainder of this season has finished so if PPG is applied to every division then the top two, in the case of the national league should be awarded promotion and the bottom four should be relegated.
    The primary concern of any human being should be directed to the beating of this terrible virus.
