WREXHAM haven’t been involved in discussions regarding a potential restructuring of the National League.

Reports emerged last week that some chairmen at League Two and National League level have held preliminary discussions regarding a ‘radical restructuring’ of the divisions.

The plans, which are reportedly at a tentative stage, would see League Two and the National League merge on a regional basis, turning them into League Two North and League Two South.

That would mean having five divisions in English football’s Premier League and EFL pyramid for the first time, helping save money on travelling costs, while boosting attendances through an increased number of derby matches.

Wrexham insist they have not been involved in any of the rumoured discussions, issuing the following statement as part of their weekly Covid-19 and Supporters Trust communication.

It read: “We have been asked about potential league restructuring as there are several stories floating around regarding League Two and the National League amalgamating in a North and South structure.

“We have not been a party to any of these discussions, if any have actually taken place.

“For this idea to come to fruition it would require League Two clubs to accept a reduced share of TV money and this seems unlikely at this point.”

Meanwhile, there is disagreement among League One clubs over whether to play on or curtail the season, and Tranmere have threatened legal action if they are relegated on a points-per-game basis.

Rovers are third-bottom of League One - three points behind AFC Wimbledon and safety with a game in hand.

Chairman Mark Palios, a former FA chief executive, criticised the EFL’s statement on settling the season if clubs vote to stop play.

Palios told talkSPORT: “The word fairness wasn’t used at all, which may be illustrative. It was disrespectful to the fans and the people who have worked hard to get us into League One from a non-league position over the last two years.

“You get that easy soundbite: oh well, it’s a coronavirus, it’s a pandemic and we can’t please everybody.

“It’s not just a change of the regulations, there are lots of other aspects that could spark a legal case.

“I will do everything to keep Tranmere Rovers in a division that everybody fought to get into.”

Wimbledon indicated they were ready to vote for curtailment, saying “we will not vote for any outcome that potentially endangers the health of our players and staff or puts clubs under further financial strain”.

The cost of testing was cited as one of the reasons why League Two clubs indicated a preference to curtail the campaign at their level last Friday.

The EFL has published the return-to-training protocol, which sets out the need for tests to be conducted on a twice-weekly basis.

There is also guidance around what club staff should do when they are at the training ground, with social distancing to be maintained at all times during this phase of the return to training.

Players will have their temperature checked and be asked to complete a medical questionnaire, communal areas of training grounds such as canteens must remain closed, but clubs may open kitchens to offer players the option to take food home.

The protocol recommends the introduction of a one-way system to avoid unintentional close contact, and asks all club staff to refrain from spitting.
