Maidstone United chief executive Bill Williams feels it could be some time still before many football fans feel safe to return.

Williams was speaking in his latest update to supporters, in which he said: “With the Covid-19 pandemic and more lockdown thinking time, I have to say that I have a slightly new perspective on the importance of football, as this disruption has given me the chance to take a step back from the beautiful game and to think about the real importance of life.

“And I’m sure a great number of our fans have also had time to reflect in a similar way.”

He added: “We have got some massive decisions to make soon, as we all strive to find a way to survive through these difficult times, and I am convinced that we have enough good people working tirelessly to find a way to get the country and football back to where it used to be.

“Fans want to go back to see live matches – we see that from those who came to watch the 23s on Saturday or have taken up groundhopping since September – but my gut feeling is some will only come back if they feel safe – so many may not return until there is a vaccine or very stringent measures in place.”
