The Island club, who play in Step 6 of the National League system – the tenth tier of English football – hope to discover the fate of their Combined Counties League campaign next week, once Prime Minister Boris Johnson announces his roadmap for easing Covid restrictions.
However, Bulls director Ian Horswell says the decision to declare leagues further up the ladder null and void could be the crucial factor.
Clubs in National Leagues North and South – the sixth tier – voted 24-19 in favour of ceasing the current season with immediate effect, amid growing concerns over the financial cost of completing a full fixture schedule.
‘If one league is declared null and void then you cannot have promotion or relegation,’ Horswell explained. ‘That has an instant impact on the leagues below and above.
‘There is no news yet but we are hoping to hear something next week.’
Meanwhile, clubs in the National League – the top-tier of non league football in England – voted 13-7 against cancelling their season, meaning they will continue.
