Durham City AFC can confirm it has voted to null and void the 2020/21 season with immediate effect.

iT will come as no surprise to most in the decision but one that has been taken solely to ensure the continuation of the club and the health of everyone.

A number of people at the club like others either have had relations die or know people who have or have had the virus and until people are protected even the new season should be looked at closer to the time.

While the overwhelming desire of the Board was to end the season we believe to continue this is impossible without the grants that clubs were assured would be in place until it was safe for crowds to return.

We must act responsibly to safeguard its future and ending the season is the only certain way to do this given the options available to us and will help us recover from the unprecedented financial challenges the club have faced and would face.

There remains a high level of uncertainty about COVID-19 and its impact on football at all levels, and it is on the basis of that uncertainty that we have reached this decision.

We are now in February and the weather is getting no better and as everyone is aware we share a ground that would just not cope with numerous games per week

We all know what people think and as a club with a new manager new players and bottom of the league this also would benefit the club although we do understand this should be no reason

Finally, we wish to thank our loyal fans for their support during what has been an exceptionally difficult period.

Please be reassured Durham City AFC will be here next season and we look forward to welcoming you.
