BRADFORD (Park Avenue) are full steam ahead in their preparations for the Vanarama National League North 2020/21 campaign.

It is reported that National League clubs have until 5pm today to vote on the 'ordinary resolution' to decide the season by points per game (PPG).

Like most clubs, Avenue were against the original proposal, which said there would be no play-offs in tier two of the National League System

The National League have since made an adaptation, stating the play-offs can happen if government coronavirus guidelines are met.

However, it is understood that this would only occur if teams from second to fifth in both the National League North and South all agree.

The main stumbling block to that would be the financial cost. It is estimated that clubs would have to pay in excess of £70,000 to ensure all the safety protocols are in place.

Bradford are yet to have their say towards the National League North's four votes on the resolution, but have been reassured their place in the league will be secure for next season, subject to FA ratification.

National League CEO Michael Tattersall has told clubs that there will be "no relegation from (National League) North and South as that is now accepted as a fact."

Following the news that the club has secured a 35-year lease on the Horsfall Stadium, work has started on replacing the playing surface with a 3G pitch ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

The stadium is officially a construction site, with contractors and machinery removing the turf from the pitch in preparation for drainage work commencing.
