The guidelines set out by the FA and the NHS are stringent, and it is the responsibility of the individual(s) who have received a positive test result to self-isolate and follow advice from the NHS track-and-trace system.

The players who tested positive are now doing the above and have not/will not be involved with the club until they have completed the required self-isolation period and no longer show any symptoms.

This does not affect our FA Cup fixture tomorrow. Our opponents, Hollands & Blair, have been notified of the situation and are happy that all guidelines have been followed correctly.

The entire ground has been deep-cleaned – as it has been after each pre-season fixture and training session.
