Altrincham co-chairman Bill Waterson says the club feel a duty to continue the current season.

Alty shared Waterson’s programme notes for last night’s home game with Wrexham, which took place at FC United’s Broadhurst Park to ensure the match could go ahead.

Waterson said: “We find ourselves in Moston this evening due to the state of the Moss Lane pitch after heavy rains throughout December and January. We feel we have an obligation to keep the National League season going, and therefore, we are doing everything in our power to get games played and to ensure that we achieve that objective.

“We are seeing some odd behaviour from our fellow National League clubs, and I am sure we will see some unusual postponements in games before the end of the season. I could imagine that some clubs would be a little reluctant to play us, in particular, at the moment, but we all need to remember the obligations we have as clubs representing elite sport in this country.

“Imagine this: you are an ambitious club striving to gain promotion from a league that many in football say that you should not even be a part of, that your rightful place lies elsewhere in the pyramid. So, you turn to new investors and attract two big names from Canada, and this is exactly what we have done.”
