OWNER REITERATES DESIRE TO FINISH SEASON

15 May 2020

“The focus should be on how we finish the season and not how do we end the season on an incomplete basis”

Marcus Evans has written to EFL chairman Rick Parry to urge the football body to do everything possible to finish the season.

Town along with Peterborough, Sunderland, Oxford, Fleetwood and Portsmouth have combined to reiterate the desire to conclude the 2019/20 campaign on the playing field when it’s safe to do so.

In the letter the Club owner acknowledges the challenges the EFL face but says unless the Government say for health reasons football can’t be played behind closed doors, all options should be investigated to see the fixtures finished for sporting integrity.

“The focus should be on how we finish the season and not how do we end the season on an incomplete basis,” Marcus writes.

The owner - along with the other clubs mentioned - also feels that the financial impact of playing out the season against curtailing the campaign now need further investigation.

The League One clubs meet with the EFL today to discuss the conclusion of the current season amongst other matters.

The media have been speculating all week that League One and League Two will not reach a conclusion, with some clubs supporting that view but the EFL have sent out a training protocol to follow if players return to training, which can't happen before May 25.
