WARRINGTON Town’s 2019/20 league season is set to begin on Saturday September 19.
The Northern Premier League confirmed that they had received instruction from the National League System that the new season can start in September, subject to guidance relating to stadium capacity limits and social distancing.
The Yellows haven’t played since March, and last season was deemed null and void, denying them the chance to earn promotion to National League North.
They will go up against the same 21 clubs, after there was no change to the league allocations meaning the likes of FC United, Scarborough Athletic and South Shields will once again be competing with the Yellows for glory.
The FA Cup first qualifying round is due to be held on Tuesday September 22, as more midweek games are scheduled throughout the shortened season which is due to end with the play-off final on May 15.
Meanwhile, the social club at Cantilever Park was successfully re-opened earlier in July while other work has been undertaken to improve areas of the ground ahead of the new season.
A sponsorship raffle for naming rights of the “Shed end” will be launched shortly and a new home kit is due to be released before kick-off.
The club is expecting to play pre-season games in August, although these will be behind closed doors as per the current restrictions.
