According to CEO Jon Adams the Magpies are yet to receive any new communication from the National League as to how promotion and relegation will be resolved .
The National League campaign was initially suspended more than two months ago before a vote was taken to bring the season to a premature conclusion.
However, 10 weeks after playing their last competitive game at home to Stockport County, United are still waiting to find out how the promotion and relegation permutations will be resolved and whether they’ll be in the National League again next season.
In all likelihood they will, but with direction coming from the top down, and nothing likely to be resolved this week in terms of what the EFL plans to do in League 2, National League clubs remain in the dark.
“We’ve had no communication from the league and nothing has changed from our perspective,” he said.
“Peter (Griffin) and I have always said it needs to be determined from the top down rather than the other way around, so until there is some clarity in terms of what happens with the EFL then I don’t think there will be clarity for the National League.”
*According to reports, the FA has now granted the National League an extension to their season, meaning it could hold play-offs beyond the end of May.
The decision keeps the prospect of play-offs on the table, but doesn't mean they'll definitely take place.
