Grimsby Town's Conference season 'cannot be extended'
CONFERENCE chief Dennis Strudwick insists the season cannot be extended - despite a building fixture backlog.
Grimsby Town face 12 league matches - and an FA Trophy final - before the close of the current campaign on Saturday, April 20.
However, the league's general manager Strudwick says an extension "wouldn't be fair" on clubs who do complete their fixtures.
"Wembley Stadium is booked for the play-off final on Sunday, May 6, so we've got to get four semi-finals played in the interim," he said.
"Even that leaves us with just seven days from the second leg of the semi-finals to the final to arrange a match and everything that goes with it for 40,000 people."
