The Bucks and other step two National League clubs are still in the dark as to whether their 2020/21 campaign will continue following the two-week break called by the league.

Last Friday's suspension, which was effective immediately, came after clubs reacted to news that the winter rescue package they were to receive from the government would be in the form of loans, rather than grants – which clubs believe was agreed while supporters are unable to attend.

Telford are not training this week and it is thought that, should they return to action on Saturday week at home to Spennymoor, clarification should be provided for players to return to training next week.

The league told clubs that a proposition for clubs to vote over regards the conclusion of the season will be delivered in the coming days.

The majority of clubs are against playing on this season if funding is not available in grant form.
