Will players who have only joined since 'season end' be allowed to play?

If so, a team setting up for a league return would have an advantage or conversely some teams may not have many players left.
Who are you calling pedantic? I resemble that remark!

I think I read that players had to be registered in March.

Provided we can have fans in the ground County coming up would mean 2 full grounds and lots of cash for the club.If they don't make it then I would like Harrogate to get promoted.Fairly close and a new ground for me.

If County come up you know SAG will want the game played before fans are allowed in, and still demand an 11am kick off.

And they’d sit in the wrong seats, fight with each other, then report us to SAG.

Yet you’ll get some special fans who “hope Notts come back up so we can have a derby”

Comments either through stupidity, ignorance, or a mixture of both

Hope county get pumped, you know they'd laud it up only having one season down there. Stuff em, local derbies are nice. Seeing your local rivals suffer in non league is more fun :D

Better atmosphere when Grimsby come to the Mill, Clownty support is raspberry, they don't even fill their end...

Hopefully it follows the trend that a lot of these post lockdown games have been doing...that being that teams make a slow start and those who have had a game or two under their belts look that bit sharper.

The new playoff format supposedly giving teams who finished higher in the league an advantage of playing a game less, could actually be a disadvantage to Clownty in this scenario.

Here's hoping.

National League play-offs - start tomorrow night, all on BT.
Fixtures here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53291764


National League North & South - start on Sunday, all available to view on Pay-per-view. £15 for all the matches seems reasonable to me and I'll be doing that (though some kick off at the same time so you couldn't actually watch every game)

Still don’t get any fans who think county back up after one season would be a good thing!?

Are you tapped in the head or something! What’s wrong with you! :lol:

here's how to order the National League North and South matches. £15 for all the matches, very reasonable I think.
