The Chorley statement said: "Having carefully considered all options available, at this time we can confirm that Chorley FC remain committed to fulfilling the 2020/21 season and have voted accordingly for a continuation of the league.

"We recognise that the current solutions on offer do not meet with the needs of all clubs and we fully respect any decision taken by other clubs that they feel are in their best interests. Likewise, we would ask other clubs to respect our decision.

"We remain hopeful that a common way forwards can still be achieved that will allow all teams to play on and conclude the current season."
