ELLIOTT DURRELL is undecided on the future of the 2019/20 National League campaigns - but feels the play-offs would be a fitting end to a strange season.

Durrell and Altrincham were in fine form when the National League North season was brought to an abrupt halt by the coronavirus pandemic.

National League sides have been advised to vote in favour of ending the regular season without playing games that were scheduled up to 25 April.

If the vote passes, clubs will then be asked to help “determine the outcomes of the season” through further polls.

Durrell, who has scored in four successive games since signing for the high-flying Robins - the best run since Bert Lister netted in nine consecutive Altrincham matches back in 1966 - feels the play-offs could still be staged if the regular season is brought to an early close.

“I’m a little bit undecided on the best thing to do,” said Durrell. “If the outcome is done on points per game then that can decide the champions and relegation places.

“When football is able to return then why not play the play-offs then? I think it would be a good way of doing things when it’s safe to do so.

“It’s a shame how the season has panned out, but there are a lot more important things than football at this moment in time and everyone needs to follow the guidelines given by the Government and it will pass.”

Should the National League North play-offs go ahead then Durrell will have plenty of connections.

Former clubs Chester and York City could find themselves in the play-off places, while Brackley, managed by Kevin Wilkin, who bossed Durrell at Wrexham, are set for a top-seven spot.

“There would be plenty of interest for me, wouldn’t there?” said Durrell, whose team-mates at Moss Lane include former Chester trio Craig Mahon, Tom Peers and Tony Thompson.

“It would certainly make for big games and the sort of games that our team thrives on.

“You only have to look at our last game against Spennymoor. They came into the the match in better form than anyone and we beat them 4-1.

“Apart from 10 or 15 minutes we were comfortable, overly comfortable to the point when we had our bad spell one of their players said ‘what’s happened, you were like Barcelona in the first-half?’

“We were confident of making the play-offs given our form and we were excited at the thought of the play-offs because they are the sort of games that we play well in.

“We were up near the top of the form table - if not top - when the season was stopped and we were confident in our ability.

“We certainly didn’t fear anyone, but we respected all our opponents and that was allowing us to play the football we were playing.”

Durrell was playing a key role in Altrincham’s fine form, the 30-year-old getting back to his best after a frustrating campaign.

A four-month stint at York City preceded Durrell’s move to Altrincham, the playmaker adding: “I came in at the wrong time. They were flying and the manager was loyal to the players who had been there from day one.”
