KNUTSFORD FC are yet to learn if their season is over due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Confirmation is awaited on how the staged easing of restrictions from lockdown number three impacts on grassroots football at county league level, Step 7.

A Cheshire Football League full council meeting provisionally rescheduled for Thursday, March 11, for a decision to be concluded has been postponed.

The Football Association has already confirmed that no further matches will be played between Steps 3 and 6 of the National League System, which includes the Northern Premier League and the North West Counties League.

A Cheshire Football League Tweet last month indicated that their season would continue, stating: "The FA Leagues Committee have decided to allow Regional Feeder Leagues to continue and have offered the extension period to 30 June for completion.

"Games can recommence as from 29 March."

But at the time of writing, Cheshire Football League chiefs were awaiting further guidance from The FA, Cheshire FA and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

"So we are still in limbo awaiting FA guidance and then a CFL full council meeting and their proposal, which I expect will be put to a vote," said Knutsford FC chairman Jimmy Evans.

As far as the Reds are concerned, Evans added: "There isn't a clear 'proposal' as to what happens next on the table for clubs to consider and vote on though there is much speculation.

"Players and managers are gung ho to start playing regardless and as soon as possible but the people who run clubs have a responsibility to consider all the facts and potential risks – Covid risks, health, safety and welfare and good governance as well as the logistics of managing multiple games in a short period.

"All we can say for sure at the moment is that we aim to have a training session on Tuesday, March 30th – subject to FA guidance and Covid situation at the time – and the hope of all clubs is that next season 2021-2022 is more normal."

Evans highlighted that the Manchester Football League have confirmed that their season is ended – null and void – and that they will try to arrange some kind of cup competition possibly in May.

"This seems a sensible and prudent decision," said Evans.

The Cheshire Football League's 2019-2020 season was ended early.

Reds have played two of their 32 league games so far this season.
