The Bucks, who have been out of action since mid-January, are in limbo as they await the outcome of the resolution of the 2020/21 National League North season, which they have voted to null and void.

Since the league-enforced two-week suspension ended at the beginning of this month, Telford’s two home matches against Spennymoor and Blyth Spartans have not taken place due to the visitors’ refusal to play.

But Telford’s stance remains they do not wish to continue the season while the issue regarding funding remains. League bosses have warned of sanctions for clubs’ refusal to play.

However, it is understood Saturday’s hosts Brackley are keen to play on, and Telford want to know if the outcome of the vote to end the season, which has a deadline of the end of February, will be clarified prior to the weekend. The Bucks have not trained for around a month.
