Highworth Town boss Ross Adams has urged the Southern League to make a decision sooner rather than later about the future of the 2020-21 season.

With all non-Elite level football currently stopped because of the coronavirus pandemic, Southern League outfit Highworth are facing a second successive cancellation of their season.

Whilst Adams agrees with the decision to stop the game at grassroots level, he is frustrated that the decision on whether to axe the current campaign has been delayed until March.

“As much as we all want to be playing football there are much more important things going on in the world than playing football,” said Adams.

“It is extremely frustrating. It is just up up in the air all the time.

“We’ve still not been told whether the league will complete this season or not, it’s been put off until March.

“That is another couple of months where you don’t know. With it being up in the air, it would be nice to have a definite decision really.”

Discussing what impact the pandemic will happen on clubs such as Highworth, Adam admitted it is going to hit everyone hard.

“I honestly don’t know what the impact is going to be,” said Adams. “Unless they can get crowds back in and the clubhouse open then it is very difficult for Highworth to continue and we’d struggle long term.

“Hopefully, all being well, Highworth is a very well run club. We live within our means. I’d like to think we are in a decent position but I don’t doubt that some clubs will struggle to come back from this.”

A decision on the current Southern League campaign is currently not expected to be made before March 6th.
