Shrivenham boss Chris Hurley believes the Hellenic League were right to null and void the current season but is not in favour of returning to a separate competition in the meantime.
Hurley, whose side were sitting bottom of the Premier Division after nine games, doesn’t feel that there is a need for competitive football in the wake of the axing of the season.
“Personally I don’t see what the point is,” said Hurley. “I would rather do friendlies if you want to do friendlies and then start pre-season end of May, June and then start the season. We are trying to cram football into this period. I’d rather personally, give it a break. Go back to the end season and start it properly.
“Friendlies are a good idea but I wouldn’t go further than that. But to do serious, competitive football between now and June, I don’t see the point of it.”
But Hurley agreed with the league’s decision to null and void the season and promised that Shrivenham will return to the 2021-22 season in much better shape.
He added: “This gives me an opportunity to basically regroup put together a much stronger team and get a much better start next season.
“For the teams at the top, it’s tough for them (having two seasons curtailed). I feel for them.
“For the teams at the bottom, it is good for them. After nine games it was the right decision to void it.”
