The Non-League Paper covers every kick of a ball as football at Steps 3 and 4 finally returned after a six week-month break.
But as Sunday’s action-packed paper reports, clubs at all levels are holding their breath on what tighter Covid restrictions could mean for crowds.
Northern Premier League chairman Mark Harris fears football is on “a knife edge” after local lockdown measures were introduced in large parts of northern England and fans in some areas were advised to stay away from spectator sports.
National League chief executive Michael Tattersall also warns the return of fans is hanging in the balance ahead of test friendlies this week involving the competition’s clubs as part of a wider programme to demonstrate sport can be Covid-secure.
