Bermuda English Footballers to be Updated Tomorrow

Nahki Wells, Nathan Trott, Reggie Lambe and Jonte Smith will all be anxiously waiting to hear the news as the English Football League (EFL) will meet Wednesday May 13th, to discuss options for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

Clubs across the EFLís Three Divisions have been hit hard by the economic impact of the coronavirus, with a significant number utilizing the governmentís furlough scheme during the past few months.

However for Wells and his Bristol City teammates, this could turn nasty as Premier League clubs are threatening to oppose promotion to the top-flight if Project Restart goes ahead and the Championship season cannot be completed.

Wells and Bristol City are one point out from a play-off spot for a promotion run in the Championship.

The Premier League met on Monday to discuss the latest in their Project Restart plans.

While the Football Association has made it clear that they will not allow relegation from the Premier League to be cancelled and wants to avoid the season being declared null and void, The Telegraph states Premier League clubs are arguing that promotion and relegation must be awarded under the same set of circumstances.

Clubs in the top-flight believe it would be unfair for the Premier League to be played to completion and the bottom three relegated if the Championship campaign is curtailed, where either the current standings or points-per-game would be used.

Instead, they are arguing that the same circumstances have to take place in the Championship for promotion to occur - putting significant pressure on the EFL to complete the 2019/20 season.
