King's Lynn Town doubtful they will complete National League season




King's Lynn Town Football Club remains uncertain if they will finish the current National League season after next week's two home games against Barnet and Weymouth.

The Linnets have been told to carry on playing after National League clubs voted against a proposal to end the season because of the growing financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

And although the club have confirmed that they will fulfil their next two fixtures, what happens after that remains unclear with chairman Stephen Cleeve not prepared to keep spending thousands out of his own pocket on wages.
