It comes as a result of feedback from clubs across the two divisions provided to the league authority after discovering £11m government support would be provided as loans.

The majority of sides from across the south and north divisions had asked for the campaign to be halted unless funding could arrive in the form of grants.

Hawks had already entered a self-imposed 10-day self-isolation period as they await what they believe will be a positive Covid-19 result of a player who was involved in the league defeat at Bath City earlier this week.

But that break has now been extended to two weeks with the National League confirming the two sixth tier divisions are being temporarily brought to a halt.

Despite take the decision to stop playing themselves prior to the season suspension, Hawks face no action from the National League while they wait await the result of the squad members test.

All scheduled fixtures in the National League South and North tomorrow have been postponed as a result.
