Bath City chairman Nick Blofeld believes the right decision has been made to null and void the National League South season.
Speaking in response to last Thursday’s league announcement, Blofeld told the club’s website:
“Firstly, we would of course much prefer to be playing football, as it is why we exist, and we are very disappointed for our supporters, players, coaches and support staff. But we also know that the finances for the season simply wouldn’t stack up with no attendance at matches and without grants.
“So this is the right decision for the financial security of Bath City and, we believe, for the league. Thank you to everyone who has supported us through this very difficult time, we’re proud of the solidarity of the club, supporters, management and players and look forward to a much brighter 2021/22 season, with all our clubs still solvent and competing.
“And I would like to pay tribute to (manager) Jerry (Gill), (assistant manager) Jim (Rollo) and the players especially, who competed in the most trying of circumstances and were just beginning to hit their stride when things came to a halt. Now we will focus on planning for next season and beyond.”
