We were warned about a second wave and it looks like its finally arrived.

The new announcements from the Prime Minister his week are all things we didn't want to hear, but for football fans, the news was another blow to hopes of getting away from the TV and back into grounds.

There was hope that from October 1, a limited number of fans would be allowed into ground after pilot events seemed to be going well across the UK.

Barrow wasn't one of those pilot games, but Bluebirds fans are itching to get back into Holker Street.

But for now anyway, the thought of a pie and pint while watching AFC back in the Football League has moved that little further away.

It is typical that their first season for 48 years and it could potentially be next year, 2021, before the fans are even allowed back into the terraces.

That may not be the case. If people abide by rules and help address the rise in Covid cases, then it may be sooner, we just don't know.

As Barrow CEO Levi Gill explained last month, the club are in a good place. However, if grounds remain closed and unless financial support comes from the Football League or the Government, a far bigger situation could be facing the football world soon, even the sporting world.

Club's are struggling now, and if it is six months before bums are on seats, they could be in even bigger trouble.
