Kidderminster Harriers hoping for a September start

Kidderminster Harriers’ 2020/21 National League North season could kick off as early as September 5 – and there are hopes for a fan presence at Aggborough.

National League clubs have been in conference calls with league bosses this week and it is thought that a target of early September has been pencilled in for action to return.

But step two of non-league getting under way in just under three months is on the premise of no second wave of Covid-19.

Clubs are working on the basis of fans being permitted into stadiums for games, but with the likelihood of a reduced capacity.

The National League have proposed that the 2019/20 season will be decided on a points-per-game basis, with a Monday deadline for clubs to vote. The proposals would see Harriers finish 15th, leapfrogging Hereford in the current standings.
