Richard Kay, manager of SOUTHAM United, plans to resume the season following the government’s release of the government’s coronavirus roadmap on Monday, David Hucker writes.

According to the timetable, organized sport will be allowed from March 29th and Kay is waiting for the football association and the Hellenic League to confirm whether the current season will resume when the club is ready to play by the end of June if necessary.
Since indoor hospitality is only allowed on May 17th, which affects the opening of the clubhouse and the limits of social contact will only be completely lifted in the final phase on June 21st, the question of whether spectators will be admitted is still in the air and without the sources of income clubs may not be willing to pay for the resumption of games.
Whatever the outcome, Kay’s squad will begin training in March, ready to continue playing or as a prelude to an expanded pre-season program for 2021-22.
Two signings have been announced with Kieran Brady, a left-sided player who can play wide or full back, who signed with Buckingham Athletic, and Ryan Webb, who joined CrickAFC and previously played in Germany in the British Army.
