Wrexham’s Jake Lawlor admits National League chiefs faced a “massive decision” about whether the season should continue.

The National League initially gave the go-ahead for games to be played last weekend but announced on Monday that fixtures were being suspended until April 3 at the earliest because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Wrexham’s clash at leaders Barrow was postponed on Friday after a member of the Reds’ first-team squad was advised to self isolate after showing symptoms of the pandemic.

Two more players have also shown the same symptoms and Lawlor says the National League were in a difficult position.

“It is a massive decision to make with what happens in each league,” said Lawlor.

“When we heard the news on Friday that the Premier League and English Football League was being suspended, we thought the National League was going to follow suit.

“Obviously they made their decision based on certain things; I don’t know if it was for financial reasons but it’s a tough one for them.

“They are going to be upsetting people whatever way they decide.”
