HOLYHEAD Hotspur manager Darren Garmey has urged the Football Association of Wales to not cancel the domestic season from tier three down.

The governing body are set to discuss the next step after the English FA opted to cancel all football below the three divisions that make up the National League with immediate effect.

This is something that the FAW are set to discuss in the coming days, and any decision would leave the Holy Islanders’ without the chance of multiple silverware and an instant return to JD Cymru North after a memorable season so far.

Garmey, said: “I really hope this is not the case. I just cannot see the reason why they would want to cancel the rest of the season from tier three down.

“Surely the FA should give the sides challenging for promotion to tier two a fair chance after playing 75 per cent of the season already.

“It is also my view that if they cancel tier three down then they will have to void tier 1 and 2 also because if all the sides battling relegation will then be just playing the season out and takes away the integrity of the league.

“And, of course, this would be harsh on the likes of Connah’s Quay Nomads, TNS and Prestatyn Town, but ourselves and Denbigh Town are in the same position albeit on a different scale.”

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One leaders are primed for an instant return to the second tier and currently eight points ahead of Denbigh Town having played a game more.

They are also in contention to secure two cup competitions, and Garmey is keen for things to play out and possibly start next season at a later date.

“Apart from the teams battling relegation, there won’t be a team in the country that wants to see this season cancelled,” he added.

“You can see just how much people are missing football and of course it is secondary at the moment to the fight against the coronavirus but when we are getting back to our normal lives we will most definitely be looking forward to getting back on the pitch.

“Also does it really matter if we finish the season in June or even July? And then delay next season? I really do not think it does so the Welsh FA really need to make their own decision on this and not just follow suit with what they are doing over the border.”
