Maidstone United chief executive Bill Williams has urged the National League not to let the uncertainty over this season and upcoming games rumble on.

As part of his latest club update, Williams offered thoughts on the much-discussed funding arrangements for clubs at Step 1 and 2.

He also spoke of his wish for decisive leadership when it comes to imminent fixtures and the ultimate outcome of the 2020/21 campaign:

“If I had some advice for our league bosses, and to be candid there’s much I could offer, let me say on this one issue, please do your lobbying, get the views from clubs and make a decision one way or the other. The FA Trophy has continued throughout – despite the leagues below us being suspended – so we can be as confident as we can that this game (Maidstone play Hornchurch) will go ahead.

“If I am a club that’s due to play a league game on the 6th, I want to know sooner rather than later – by the end of this week at the latest – if that is going to happen, so I can prepare my squad and make the necessary arrangements. This is not a time for kicking the can down the road and I hope a decision will be made in the interests of all member clubs and not just those vying for a place in the Football League or avoiding the trapdoor to North and South.”
