Coventry City’s League One rivals ‘extremely disappointed’ over MPs’ letter to EFL

Coventry City’s League One rivals have made their stance clear amid calls to continue the season.

Shrewsbury MP Daniel Kawczynski signed a letter supporters by 17 other MPs, requesting EFL clubs receive financial help to get them through the issues caused by coronavirus.

Though, the letter also requested the current League One season be finished, and that has not gone down well with Kawczynski’s local club, Shrewsbury Town.

Shrewsbury do not want the League One season to be finished amid concerns the club would suffer serious financial damage if play was to resume.

And they made their feelings clear in a club statement today.

The statement read: “Shrewsbury Town FC would like to clarify that at no point has Daniel Kawczynski contacted the club asking to sign this letter on our behalf.

“We are extremely disappointed that this letter has been published without any prior consultation. We believe that our local MP should already be aware of the club’s stance given our open letter that was published only last week.

“We would also like to reiterate our stance that we do not wish to continue the remainder of the season. First and foremost we have a duty of care as an employer to look after the health of our employees and we do not feel it is right to put them at risk by returning to training and playing at this critical time. We also believe it would be financial suicide to continue.”

If the season does not continue, a non-weighted points-per-game method would be used, and that would promote leaders Coventry City.

Shrewsbury are currently 16th and nine points clear of the drop zone.
