AFC Telford to miss another weekend

AFC Telford United are understood to be poised for another weekend off with visitors Blyth Spartans unlikely to travel.

Sixty-six National League clubs from steps one and two are still awaiting the outcome of voting on the resolution of 2020/21 campaign.

It is believed the outcome of the vote is near, with a majority of clubs having submitted their views on the season’s status.

National North Telford have not played since mid-January, prior to the league’s two-week break. They were due to host Spennymoor Town weekend but the visitors were not willing to travel.

It is understood the Bucks have been told similar by this Saturday’s visitors Blyth, who would also face a lengthy trek down to Shropshire. Blyth’s scheduled home game against Bradford Park Avenue did not take place on Tuesday after the Northumberland side contacted the National League to convey their views.

Clubs have been told that an unwillingness to not play fixtures could lead to sanctions, including fines of up to £10,000.

The Bucks do not want to play matches and have voted to null and void the season, but they have not refused to play a fixture. Telford hope a voting conclusion is reached by midweek next week ahead of a trip to Brackley on Saturday week, one of the clubs who are keen to continue the season.
