Confirmed by Ollie Bayliss, BBC non-league reporter, that it doesn't. I was expecting that - the previous law only allowed groups for up to 30 so non-league wasn't covered by that either. I assume the principle is that at non-league - or any business enforcing social distancing as it should be - not everyone at the venue counts as a 'gathering' but rather lots of mini-gatherings, socially distant from each other.

But nonetheless it already feels like the chances of this season passing off as normal are slim. With positive tests increasing, more and more players will inevitably test positive leading to games getting called off. Local lockdowns are on the increase, which will surely stop games going ahead with fans (and we know behind closed doors is financially impossible). 300 people have just been told to self-isolate after an outbreak at a charity game in the North East.

I really don't know why last season was called off, it could have been postponed until now and we might have had a chance of restarting, getting the last ten or so games played, and then taking stock on what the new season might look like. Instead it feels like they've gone for the ideal scenario but we'll most likely end up with two disrupted seasons in a row.
