BRADFORD (Park Avenue), along with 16 other National League North and South clubs, including Guiseley, have a list of conditions on what they want to see happen in the immediate future.

They say a fully-funded Covid testing regime must be in place before National League clubs can resume playing, and they do not want to see clubs punished for being unable to fulfil fixtures for financial or safety reasons.

Crucially, they claim the existence of clubs will be under theat if urgent actions are not taken.

The joint-statement from the 17 National League North and South clubs reads:

All undersigned clubs support the re-commencement of all viable fixtures until the results of the resolution are known, but only when both clubs participating in a fixture are in agreement and when there is a fully funded Covid testing regime in place, as both the National League and its member clubs have a duty of care for the safety of players and staff.

Clubs who are unable to commit to fixtures should continue to have their season held in suspense by the league and do so without fear of sanctions.

Furthermore, we have agreed to submit our votes on the resolutions to the National League as soon as reasonably practical and implore all clubs at Steps 1 and 2 to do likewise.

Any delay or abstaining from voting would be damaging for the clubs in the most urgent situations.

We must finish the season with all 66 clubs in existence.
