Artell: "Solution Has To Be Found To Complete Season"

16 March 2020

David Artell has told the club’s official website that he would prefer to play behind closed doors rather than see the season scrapped.

Crewe Alexandra are top of League Two at this stage, with Swindon Town in second place on the same number of points and with a game in hand.

The coronavirus has seen professional football put on hold until 3rd April at the earliest. Crewe’s games against Mansfield, Forest Green, Colchester and the local derby against Port Vale have all been postponed.

The Crewe boss feels that the integrity of the competition has to be upheld by completing the remaining fixtures of the season at all levels.

David told the club’s official website: “There has to be a solution to complete the season. I don’t think we can scrap the season and make it null and void with 9, 10 games to go.

“If that means extending the season and moving the play-offs and the Euros then so be it. If that means coming back and playing some games behind closed doors then that is the lesser of the two evils. It is not ideal but at the moment I am sure they are looking at extending the season and making sure the games are played.

“There will be this delay and the hopefully we can get back to some normality but we can only do what we are advised to do.”
