The FA has ended all grassroots football for this season.
All results for 2019-20 will be expunged for Steps 3 to 6 of the non-league system, including the United Counties League, which is at Division is at Steps 5 and 6.
This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between Steps 3 to 6, and no promotion to Step 2.
An FA statement 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."
It added that this was the fairest method - but many clubs who were expecting to be promoted are set to challenge the decision.
Boston Town historian Simon Ashberry said that regardless of the FA decision, all appearances made and goals scored this seson would remain in the club's official records.
Several players have reached landmarks this season, including Lori Borbely and Ollie Pinner.
