Concord Rangers have said that they will not play any further National League South games until clearer information is given from the league regarding support.

This week’s communication from the league presented member clubs with three options over continuing the season: applying for a government loan, the National League taking on the loan (to be shared as grants between clubs, but with impact on future central distributions), or suspending the current season.

Concord Rangers chairman Antony Smith subsequently said that the club are unwilling to pursue a loan option to continue the current campaign.

A further statement now adds: “On further reflection of the meeting yesterday, our club will not be competing in any further fixtures within the National League South until we have clearer information on: the regular testing of players and staff (we are the only ‘elite’ competition that are not doing this), financial support as discussed in yesterday’s meeting.”
