SOUTHEND United’s Jason Demetriou is starting to think another ball will not be kicked this season.

The Shrimpers, who have not played since the start of March, have seen their campaign suspended until the end of April due to the coronavirus pandemic.But Demetriou feels the season is a long way off being able to resume.

“I know people will look at our league position and say I’m being selfish about it but I can’t see how the season can start again anytime soon,” said Demetriou.

“There’s no way that in three or four weeks 30 or 40 of us are going to be able to train alongside each other.

“I’m sure it will be delayed again and if we get to the end of June then it becomes even more complicated because of the situation with contracts.

“Before you know it next season will be starting and I’m starting to think they might just have to cancel the season, even though I know that will be tough for some teams to take.”

Blues, who sit second from bottom in the League One standings, have been given no return date for training yet.

The club’s Boots & Laces training ground remains closed, even for injured players.
