Vauxhall Motors players were due to start pre-season training this week, with a specially devised social distancing workout programme.

The Motormen will be separated in groups of five, with each group taking a quarter of the full pitch, as manager Mick McGraa begins his third season at the club.

At present, the club does not know which division they will be competing in, or indeed when the new 2020/21 season may commence.

The Motormen gained promotion from the NWCL Division One South on the Saturday prior to the coronavirus lockdown. The FA subsequently declared the 2019/20 season 'null and void' but the league are backing Vauxhalls 'promotion' even if it means operating with a 21-club set up in the Premier Division.

The final decision will rest with the FA, who are due to hold a meeting of the various Step 5 and 6 leagues in the next week to try and determine a way forward through the pandemic.

The Motormen are currently unable arrange any pre-season friendlies.
