WREXHAM SUPPORTERS TRUST have announced that they voted in favour of continuing the 2020-21 National League season.

Member clubs were asked to consider three possible options at last week's National League meeting amid discontent over funding.

Clubs have been told that future funding to get them through the coronavirus crisis will be issued in the form of loans and not grants, and the decision was taken on Friday to suspend the National League North and National League South for two weeks

Fixtures in non-league's top flight went ahead on Saturday, with Wrexham losing 2-1 to Chesterfield at The Technique Stadium, and the club want to continue playing.

A Trust statement read: “As you may be aware, last week the National League held meetings with Member Clubs regarding the Government’s Winter Survival Package.

“At the request of the National League’s interim General Manager Mark Ives, the board of the Wrexham Supporters Trust considered the following options:

1. The operation of a Club Loan process through Sport England

2. The operation of a National League loan to be distributed to each club

3. A suspension the 2020/21 National League season

“The WST wishes to inform members that after discussion at a board meeting last week, option two was the favoured choice. The board also voted in favour of continuing the current National League season.

“Representatives of our prospective new owners are also in full agreement with these decisions.”
