Notts County’s board of directors have issued a message to supporters following the media’s publication of a National League statement to clubs, the content of which suggests the league’s intention is to close the 2019/20 season as soon as possible.
The statement from Notts, who are 3rd in the Vanarama National League at present, reads:
We appreciate that today’s media coverage has caused a great deal of confusion and concern to our fans who are very keen to see us complete our season. Naturally, we share their desire to continue our push for at least a play-off position and a place in the Buildbase FA Trophy final.
While we have yet to be officially consulted by the National League, we’d like to assure our supporters that we have already strongly stated our case for all remaining fixtures to be played so that promotion and relegation matters can come to a natural conclusion.
It’s our firm belief that a dynamic approach needs to be taken in order to preserve the integrity of both the National League and the FA Trophy and we have shared several ideas with the league, the EFL and the FA on how we feel this can be achieved.
