O'NEILL ON EXTENSION TO SEASON SUSPENSION

19 March 2020

“We are preparing to get players back and ready to play games for the end of April but it’s an ever-changing situation"

Lee O’Neill has told the Club website that the players’ return to training has been put on hold following the decision to delay the resumption of the season.

The EFL and Premier League announced at the end of last week that no football will be played until April 3 following the Covid-19 outbreak. That return date has now been extended until the end of the month at the earliest following consultation between the football authorities this morning.  

“It’s a sensible position to take, to give the authorities more time to see how things develop,” Lee, Town’s general manager of football operations, told the Club website.

“When you look at what’s happening around the country and you hear that London might be going into lockdown, then it’s clear we are a long way from playing football again.

“The players were due to return to training on March 26 but that won’t happen now and the coaching staff are working on a new timetable.

“We are preparing to get players back and ready to play games for the end of April but it’s an ever-changing situation and of course the priority is the health and safety of everyone.”
