MIKE Harris has voiced concerns after Welsh football shuddered to a halt last week.

The TNS chairman insisted the Oswestry club would follow the regulations of the Football Association of Wales (FAW) which opted to postpone the season after the Welsh Government imposed a 50 supporter cap for all fixtures.

Scotland has imposed a 500 supporter limit while no restrictions have been enforced in England which has led to much consternation from Welsh football clubs.

While some have expressed support and insisted a 50 supporter cap would not cover costs, other clubs have expressed disappointment that their coffers have been deprived of festive derby gate money.

Meanwhile Harris feared the decision would impact the integrity of the league.

Speaking to BBC Shropshire, the TNS managing director said: "Two years ago the JD Cymru Premier title was effectively chosen by a toss of a coin and I am concerned about the integrity of our national league.

"Ultimately you should only be awarded titles and qualifying for Europe on sporting merit."

Harris insisted his club would follow the FAW rules but did not see the logic.

"This Christmas a football supporter living in Wales could jump in their car and travel to any football match across England but these rules mean nobody could attend a match in their home town or village.

"A capped attendance would have made more sense, similar to Scotland, with clubs compensated for their loss of revenue.

"I appreciate the games will now be re-arranged but they will not be able to compensate for not being held during the Christmas period which is, and always has been, a special time for fans.

"Ultimately you cannot recreate the atmosphere of a Welsh football ground on Boxing Day."

Harris called for the devolved governments to work with Westminster to ensure one set of rules across the country.

"The fact each country has imposed differing rules, from no restrictions in England, to 500 fans in Scotland, to 50 fans in Wales and then postponing the season, goes to show we need one set of rules, " said Harris. "It has become a game of politics now."
