Notts County manager Neal Ardley hopes there will not be a premature end to the current National League season.

Uncertainty around the fate of the 2020/21 campaign has reached new heights this week, with clubs asked by the league for their feedback over what should happen.

Notts boss Ardley told the club’s website:

“I know every club has their agenda, but as far as we’re concerned, we’ve started a season and we intend to finish it.

“I don’t think this pandemic is going away in the next few weeks. If you’re suspending the league, it’s going to be very difficult to start up again.

“When does the season finish? We’re already into May because we started after everyone else – we’re well short of the EFL in terms of games played.

“I think we need to plough through because, touch wood, with the vaccine being rolled out things will get better.”
