The Belles’ 2019/20 season is over after the Football Association expunged the league campaign due to the covid-19 pandemic.

Football has been on hold across the planet due to the crisis. The FA, FA Women’s Board members and the Women’s Football Conference consulted and reached a consensus regarding the women’s football pyramid on Thursday.
 
All leagues except the Women's Super League and Women's Championship have now been ended, with results expunged. The Regional Talent Club's season has also been ended. 
 
The FA and the Leagues within Tiers 3 to 7 have reached a consensus to bring the season to an immediate end and all results will be expunged.
 
The Football Association said: “These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game and in consultation across key stakeholders. Our primary concern will always be for the safety and welfare of clubs, players, staff, officials, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time.
 
"These steps take into account the financial impact during this uncertain period, whilst considering the fairest method on how the sporting outcomes for the season will be decided, with the integrity of the Leagues in mind."
 
The FA is reviewing all options to conclude the 2019/20 Emirates FA Cup, Women’s FA Cup, Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase.
