A MEETING held by the Football Association for non-leagues at step five and six has set out some scenarios for the re-start of football next season.

The Hellenic League which Westfields, Wellington, Hereford Pegasus and Hereford Lads Club all play in were part of the meeting.

It was confirmed that even if clubs seek voluntary relegation they would not be replaced at step four via any promotion from step five (Westfields' league).

The committee said that games cannot re-start at non-league steps one to seven without spectators and that all leagues would be tied together on a re-start date and that it would only do so when the Department of Media, Culture and Sport gives approval.

Football below step seven (Herefordshire County League) may start at a different date and is subject to specific 'grass-roots' Government guidance.

The meeting heard that the FA are working on various scenarios as to when and how it affects the programme of games.

If league action was to resume in August a normal season would take place.

If the league starts in September or October there would be a normal league season but no county or league cups.

Whilst not guaranteed, the FA said that the 'most likely' current scenario would see football re-start in September.

A November or January re-start date could see half seasons or splitting divisions in half.

The FA stated that a pre-season would 'occur' before the commencement of matches, but they were not prepared to say what duration in weeks that timeframe would be.

Westfields defender Ryan Green says that his team-mates feel they have 'unfinished business' after the league was curtailed and classed as null and void with them sitting 13 points clear at the top of the Hellenic Premier.

"All the work we put in meant we were 13 points clear so we were absolutely gutted with the outcome," added Green.

"We put so much work in and had a great togetherness with the squad. We have got unfinished business and hopefully we'll keep the same squad next season.

"I can't get my head around how it is one thing for one league and then points per game to finish another league.

"There are also teams going bust above us so there might be an opportunity there, you never know.

"If we are still in the same league then there is a lot of unfinished business. It would also be good to have another pop at the FA Vase."

Westfields are making some pitch preparations for next season along with the refurbishment of their clubhouse following the flooding in March.

"We have now got Ben Bowen doing the pitch and it looks fantastic," added Green.

"Towards the end of the season because some of the pitches were wetter and boggy it became a leveller.

"When it was nice and pitches were firm then we were too good for teams. Westfields is a great club and I love everybody there. I really enjoyed myself there and I don't want to talk to any other clubs at the moment."
