The league, which features three divisions that include Kidderminster Harriers in the North, had initially suspended action until Friday, April 3.

But Harriers will not be in action this weekend after the league confirmed the decision to bring its football to a halt given the ‘very serious and unprecedented national public health emergency.’

The league did add that they are in talks with the FA and other stakeholders and remain ‘committed’ to involving clubs in the decision as to how the season will conclude.

A statement read: “The National League is currently obtaining specialist legal advice, is consulting regularly with The Football Association and other stakeholders, and is committed to involving its member clubs in a pending decision on how best to conclude the 2019/20 season.”

Russ Penn's Kidderminster are 16th in the National North and were last in action on March 7 with a 2-1 home win at Southport.
