A statement from the National League added: “Festive fixtures will be on Saturday, 21 December, with Boxing Day fixtures taking place as normal.

“Fixtures will be scheduled on New Year’s Day (Wednesday, 1 January) with clubs able to switch to New Year’s Eve (Tuesday, 31 December) if both clubs reach an agreement to do so.

“Historically, the Christmas and New Year schedules are reversed, in that the Boxing Day Fixtures are reversed with New Year Day fixture, therefore playing the same team in a close timeframe.

“After surveying all clubs, the National League Board agreed that the League will reverse next season’s Boxing Day fixtures with Good Friday and New Year with Easter Monday.”
