BROMSGROVE Sporting boss Bren Kelly insists the Rouslers’ season should be seen as a success no matter whether it is completed.

The Southern League announced on Tuesday it wants to end the current season but cannot proceed with plans until the National League - non-league’s top flight - is also on board.

Whether that means promotion and relegation are decided on current positions, on a points per game basis, or the season is declared null and void remains to be seen.

Bromsgrove sit fourth in the Premier Division table, comfortably inside the play-off spots, and boss Kelly admits he wants the season to continue - but is proud of his side’s accomplishments whatever happens over the coming days and weeks.

Kelly said: “We have put ourselves in a remarkable position in our first season in Step 3 football.

“We have propelled ourselves into the promotion race and if the season finishes and the division is decided on a points per game tally then I would be happy with that because we would be sitting in the play-offs.

“But sport has to take a back seat when this type of stuff is going on and it’s unprecedented for our generation - and if the league is to be scrapped to save lives, then so be it.

“Whatever happens, we have to look on our season as a success.”

The Southern League statement, released on Tuesday, said: “The Step 3 & 4 leagues share clubs’ frustration it is taking so long to determine if the 2019/20 season is to end now, and if so on what basis.

“To maintain the integrity of our competitions, we need to apply one solution across all of the National League system. However, this may not be possible.

“The Southern, Isthmian and Northern Premier Leagues are unanimous in wanting to terminate the 2019-20 season immediately.

“Whether that is done by determining final placings via average points per game, or the season is declared null and void, cannot be decided until the National League decides how it wishes to proceed.”
