Carlton Town say club officials are unanimously against any idea of playing matches without fans present.
The Nottinghamshire side currently play in the Northern Premier League Division South East, so have had their 2020/21 season put on hold in recent weeks.
Chairman Mick Garton told the club’s website:
“We were keen to get restarted after the lockdown, that’s why we spoke to Cleethorpes and both teams agreed to play despite the chance of only one training session prior to the game.
“We were staggered to be placed in tier 3, given the way cases had come down, and even more staggered to be told supporters were now banned from attending.”
