Come on you Reds!
2021/22 season start date
I see according to the club statement the new season in penciled in to start on Saturday 14th August.
Can't help thinking the Southern/Isthmian/Northern League or FA etc have slipped up here (unless anyone knows different )
Why don't they start the league two or three weeks earlier to give clubs a bit of leeway fixture wise if the league gets suspended due to "Covid" reasons later in the winter? (which I'd say there's a good chance)
There'd still be time for clubs to get money spinning friendlies in if we're opening up the country on 21st June and it don't look like many people will be going abroad on there holidays this summer.

Re: 2021/22 season start date
Yes. You are probably right. Even starting one week earler would get 2 more games played in August.
But to far to The administrators at our level they have done a difficult job fairly well so far, but failing to get a full season played this tine could kill clubs before the following season.
