Aforesaid article:
Chesterfield are not the bad guys

Chesterfield got lucky. When a local medical centre had vaccines left after no-shows, the football club was contacted and some players and staff benefited.

The Pfizer vaccine has to be kept at a specific temperature with a very limited shelf life. Of course, rather than see them go to waste, there will be those who gain from random availability.

If the club pulled strings to jump the queue, that is different. If vulnerable sections of society were deprived as a result, that is wrong. But if as Chesterfield say they were told by the surgery that all other options had been exhausted and that the vaccine would have been wasted if they had not had the jabs, what is the problem? The National League is in crisis.

Some clubs are pressing for it to be called off. They do not have the money for regular testing programmes, yet players travel nationwide on cramped coaches to complete the fixture list. Chesterfield to Torquay is a 512-mile round trip, Weymouth 510 miles, Dover 466.

And while these are young, fit men, they still return to families and communities. They are not in bubbles like the Premier League stars, they are not working from the living room. So stop the spread.

The vaccine call-up has inconsistencies. There will be people who live their lives at home, yet qualify for priority care. There will be people who must travel to work and come into contact with others every day who will be last on the list.

That is the way the system works. There had to be an order and it was never going to be perfect.

Yet what we can surely all agree on is the more who are vaccinated, the better.

And better the staff and players of Chesterfield, than vaccines go in the bin.

Queue-jumping is selfish. Yet if all Chesterfield benefited from was a friendly face in the medical centre and being in the right place at the right time, then lucky them and shame on those who choose not to turn up.

National League clubs have been asked to vote on resolutions.

The resolutions give clubs the chance to vote to end the season at either Step 1, Step 2 or both.

Ending the season would make the relevant division(s) null & void.

For legal reasons, clubs have 28 days to respond.

Res. 1: Gives clubs the chance to decide the fate of their own Step.

Res. 2 & 3: Clubs vote to end their own Step (only applies if Res. 1 passes):

Res. 4: Clubs vote to end all Steps (only applies if Res. 1 fails)

*Res. 1 needs 75% majority.
*Res. 2,3&4 needs 50% majority.

From the Liverpool Echo:

It took the non-leaguers 12 hours from leaving East Anglia to get to their team hotel in Southport – a journey diligently reported by the local press.

“Travelling by coach to Southport they were halted six times between Nottingham and Derby due to engine failure, probably caused by melting ice in the tank,” reported the Daily Post’s Horace Yates, showing a commendable grasp of vehicle engineering. He added: “In desperation they had to change coaches at Derby to complete their journey, but it meant a complete rearrangement of their plans. Gone was their opportunity to see the pantomime ‘Humpty Dumpty’ in Southport, for all the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t get their coach moving again.”

The National League North & South have been suspended for 2 weeks.

The decision was made at a League Board meeting this morning, following feedback from clubs.

As a result, tomorrow's games are formally postponed.
