CONWY Borough first team manager Chris Morrell has reacted to the period of inactivity for his side and football across the country.

The Football Association of Wales have extended the suspension of domestic fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic until April 30, which now casts significant doubt over the ability to finish the campaign.

The Tangerines’ boss stated he “understands and accepts” the decision implemented by the governing body, with safety paramount as COVID-19 concerns grow with every passing day.

Morrell, said: “All of us as a team and staff understand and accept the situation to suspend football.

“The welfare of the people is the highest law and so, if not having group gatherings helps then it is a no-brainer.

“Luckily as yet we don’t have any illnesses in the group with players working individually at present, but in regards to our group training, we will take have to take on government advice and move on from there.

“All of us at Conwy Borough wish nothing but the best and good health during this uncertain time and we can only hope that things improve off the pitch before even considering anything on it.”

It has been an eventful season at Y Morfa for Borough, who currently sit seventh after winning eight and drawing six of their opening 24 games.

A blistering start saw them in early title contention before tailing off during the autumn, but despite losing director of football Warren Gibbs to increasing family commitments, the club remains on course for a top-half finish.

The likes of Tomos Clarke, Sean McCaffrey and Ben Heald have played a leading role this season, with prolific striker Corrig McGonigle also at his clinical best.
