ST ASAPH City manager Daniel Brewerton has given his thoughts on the possible cancellation of the domestic football season.

The Saints’ boss is of the belief that the Football Association of Wales should cancel all remaining fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic, which would expunge all fixtures and leave plenty of questions ahead of the new tier criteria regulations coming in next term.

Brewerton outlined that the Covid-19 pandemic “is much bigger than football”, with the prospect of so many games in such a short space of time another big concern for part-time players with full-time jobs.

He said: “My opinion on the season's outcome is probably a bit controversial to some, but I believe it should just be cancelled now and start a new season whenever it is safe to do so.

“This situation we are in is hitting people hard in many different ways. I think people and communities are going to need time to recover from all of this.

“People are losing their lives, family members, jobs, maybe even their homes at some point, to try and pick the season up at some point with the added pressure of trying to complete fixtures in a short space of time at this level is just something I don’t think we should be doing.

“I understand that teams have put a lot of time and effort into the season and will want to finish it for their own reasons but the knock-on effect could last a long time.”

City currently sit 14th in Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One after winning three and drawing eight of their 23 games.

They are on course to meet the FAW’s new tier three regulations, with a new stand being constructed and a PA system also set to be installed in time for the extended deadline on May 21.
