Tamworth Vote To Delay Southern League Restart

Thomas Baillie has confirmed Tamworth voted to delay the restart of the current Southern League season if fans aren’t present at every ground.

Clubs voted on Tuesday evening following a Zoom call with league officials.

A total of 16 Southern League teams are currently in Tier 3 following a second national lockdown, with a review expected on December 16.

The Lambs’ Head of Senior Football Thomas Baillie has revealed the club voted to delay the restart unless fans were present or a sufficient financial package was agreed to play behind closed doors.

He said: “Tamworth voted for a suspension of the league until either fans are allowed or government support is given in form of a grant rather than a loan that requires to be paid back.

“Everything is based on the government’s tier system with the review on December 16.

“Games could commence on December 19 but as this is only three days notice, I expect it to be after this date.”

An official announcement of the vote outcome is expected later today (Thursday).
