OUR 1-1 draw against Macclesfield Town on Tuesday night was originally scheduled to be played on Saturday, December 21.

That match was postponed late on the Friday night before the game, after the EFL were unable to obtain assurances that it could go ahead in a safe manner.

Following the postponement, Argyle fans were asked to advise the club if they had suffered from irrecoverable financial losses as a result, for which we would attempt to obtain compensation from Macclesfield through the EFL.

We are still awaiting the outcome of the EFL’s discussions with Macclesfield.

Regardless, as a gesture of goodwill to our fantastic travelling fans, we are delighted to announce that the club will reimburse in full, all claims that we have received.

These one-off refunds are possible only because of the exceptional circumstances of the postponement of the original fixture. Regrettably, we are generally unable to offer any refunds for travel plans that have been cancelled because of the weather, or when a match has been postponed and rescheduled for another reason.

Those supporters who have submitted a claim should contact the Argyle Club Secretary, Zac Newton, and advise him of their preferred method of payment. This can be by personal cheque or by BACS only.

Zac can be contacted through email at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]; by ’phone on 01752 302208; or by post at Home Park Stadium.

Those requiring a BACS payment should supply an account number and sort code.

Personally I think the club should await the EFL's decision. Nice gesture but seems misplaced.

I'd rather someone refunded the two points we would have bagged in the original fixture.

Just as a matter of thought how can they get compensation of Macclesfield when they havnt got a pot to piss in in the first place.

How does that work?

Macclesfield get a 7 point deduction for not playing this fixture against us. They move to 23rd, 3 points above Stevenage.

Macclesfield have been given a seven-point deduction for failing to play December's match against Plymouth and for non-payment of player wages.

It is their second deduction this season, having been docked 10 points with four suspended in December for non-payment of salaries and failure to fulfil their fixture with Crewe.

That was later reduced to seven points with three suspended after an appeal.

But those three points have now been applied to the latest punishment.

The deduction means Macclesfield slip a place to 23rd in League Two and three points above bottom side Stevenage.

Tuesday's Independent Disciplinary Commission hearing also gave them another two-point deduction, but this is suspended on the condition they do not breach any further regulations this season.

The financially-troubled club have been blighted by off-the-field issues for much of the 2019-20 season and the latest non-payment of wages applies to February.

That was the fourth time this season that they have paid players' salaries late.

Earlier in the season, Macclesfield were forced to field a mixture of youth team players and loanees in their FA Cup first-round tie with seventh-tier Kingstonian after the first team refused to play having not been paid on time. They went on to lose 4-0 at home.

The players then refused to turn out against Crewe on 7 December citing concerns over their emotional wellbeing, before failing to fulfil the fixture with Plymouth on 21 December.

Points deduction could be academic.  Macclesfield are very likely to fold anyway plus season may still be voided.

As well as Macclesfield, Southend and Bolton were in dire straits before the season was suspended. I think Oldham? also had to ask PFA for money. These clubs, a few more, are probably only still going because players are being paid on the furlough scheme, so it's quite possible that 5-10 clubs may not start next season.

EFL needs to bite the bullet and decide what lower league football will be look like next season.Which is virtually what Rick Parry said
