Shrivenham boss Chris Hurley has called for the current Hellenic League campaign to be axed completely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Covid-19 outbreak has plunged the UK back into a third lockdown and caused all non-Elite sport to be postponed until March at the earliest.

And with barely a quarter of the season’s matches played to date, Hurley says the only logical option is to axe the current season and start a new one in August.

“Logically it tells you we are not going to restart. It is depressing,” said Hurley.

“There is no real communication coming out about what we are doing, so we don’t know how we are moving forward.

“We can all speculate with the government changes getting worse, the pandemic is getting worse.

“Personally I think the league will come to the common sense decision to cancel the league and look to restart June/July.

“It’s more a case of what the league decides to do restructuring wise.

“Clubs at the bottom, like me, would want the league to be cancelled and restart which would give me the time to properly rebuild, have a proper pre-season and get off to a better start than we did this year.

“It makes sense to stop the league and start afresh in July so you can have a pre-season and start the season properly. The fairest way is to cancel the league and start afresh next season.”
