Gavin Cowan’s men are due to host Spennymoor at the weekend after the National League told clubs they were expected to resume fixtures following a two-week break while they await a resolution on the season’s outcome.

Bucks’ Andy Pryce and his fellow National League chairmen met online to discuss the prospect of playing on and it’s understood that 13 clubs, including Telford, are willing to play while the vote process goes ahead if both clubs involved in a fixture are in agreement and if a a fully funded COVID testing regime is in place.

A statement issued by the clubs said: “All undersigned clubs support the re-commencement of all viable fixtures until the results of the resolution are known, but only when both clubs participating in a fixture are in agreement and when there is a fully funded COVID testing regime in place, as both the NL and it’s member clubs have a duty of care for the safety of players and staff.

“Clubs who are unable to commit to fixtures should continue to have their season held in suspense by the league and do so without fear of sanctions.”
