Weymouth boss Brian Stock admitted it would “make sense” to extend the Vanarama National League season into June, report The Dorset Echo.

With the collapse of Macclesfield Town, the Terras are due to finish their season one week earlier than their rivals – at Notts County on Saturday, May 22.

However, Stock’s side are set to go a month without a competitive match owing to a Covid-19 outbreak plus Solihull Moors’ own self-isolation period.

To offset the loss of the Moors fixture, Weymouth played an in-house game in preparation for the visit of Chesterfield in seven days’ time.

Wary of a fixture pile-up, Stock would prefer to extend the season over playing twice a week.

He told Echosport: “It’s not ideal and at the start of the season these are the things I was conscious of – having games cancelled and a backlog of games.”
