Macclesfield Town have been relegated to the National League after the English Football League won an appeal against a points deduction.

The decision means a reprieve for Stevenage, who will retain their League Two status.

Macclesfield had been given a suspended four-point sanction, but that will be applied immediately, dropping the Silkmen to the foot of the table.

The EFL said an independent panel's decision was "final and binding".

Macclesfield appeared to have escaped relegation in June, after coronavirus ended the League Two season early, when they were docked two points, with four suspended, for breaches of regulations relating to non-payment of wages.

It left them one point above Stevenage in the table, but the appeal decision means they finish three points below their rivals, having been deducted 17 points in total over the course of the 2019-20 season, across three disciplinary cases.

Justice has been done at last, this has a been a farce from start to finish and the suspension of the four points really looked like someone had taken a bung, wtf is the point of docking points that don't apply?

All the EFL needs to do now is sort out the Sheffield Wednesday points deduction because I’m sure Charlton will have lots to say.
