The decision to make the National League North and South seasons null and void have been officially ratified.

After a vote of 66 member clubs earlier this year it was declared that the National League would continue while the regional step two divisions - where Alfreton Town play - would be axed.

Yesterday the FA Council approved the previous decisions made by the FA Alliance Committee to support the continuation of step one and to end step two with no promotion or relegation.

The decision to reject proposals for an alternative competition which would merge interested parties from the North and South divisions was also rubber stamped.

An FA statement added: "The Alliance Committee rejected the proposal, and any alternative, in the interest of the integrity of the National League System."
