King's Lynn Town's season set to be scrapped and it could be great news if National League follow English Football League decision

A firm decision on how King's Lynn Town's season will end is imminent.

The National League are set to make one of their biggest decisions for years following some major decisions by the English Football League (EFL).

Lynn were given renewed hope on Tuesday when the EFL clubs voted in favour of the EFL's proposed regulations to decide curtailed seasons on a weighted points-per-game basis.

Member clubs of the three divisions are due to be given a presentation later today by National League CEO Michael Tattersall and an Football Association representative.

The Linnets are likely to be represented by chairman Stephen Cleeve and director of football Robbie Back.

League chiefs initially met on Wednesday to discuss what happens next after League Two clubs formally voted to bring their 2019/20 season to a conclusion.

Top of agenda was whether to hold play-offs and how to decide the leagues before consulting with member clubs.

National League clubs will then be asked to vote, but a final decision has to be ratified by the FA Council.

The National League have always said they will announce their own plans following the key votes and clarification by the EFL.

After weeks of uncertainty, the decision now rests with league chiefs to decide whether they will follow suit.

The general consensus is that National League North and South clubs will vote against contesting the play-offs because of the costs involved in testing players, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Should an unweighted PPG system be used and two sides go up automatically without the play-offs, King's Lynn Town would be promoted to the National League as champions of the North section, along with York City as runners-up.
