The EFL today confirmed that the 2020-21 season will get underway across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two on the weekend of 12 September.

The 2020-21 campaign will conclude on the 8 and 9 May 2021, with the Sky Bet Play-Off Finals reverting back to the Spring Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May. Work is currently underway in respect of fixture scheduling and details will be announced in due course as to when full fixture lists for 2020-21 will be made available.

Meanwhile, Tom Flanagan has signed a two-year contract keeping him at the club until 2022. Flanagan said: “It’s been an uncertain time in every sense, so it’s good to have it signed and sealed, and I’ll be raring to go once we return to training. I get on really well with the manager and I like his management style, so I’m really looking forward to the next two years. There is definitely unfinished business for me at the club, so I can’t wait to be back.”

Manager Phil Parkinson added: “I’m really pleased that we’ve agreed a new deal with Tom. He’s a good character and an excellent professional, and we are all looking forward to working with him again during the upcoming season.”
