The news means the club’s fixture this evening (13th October) at Newcastle Town has been postponed.

The Scholars have also had to withdraw from the FA Trophy having been due to face Yaxley this weekend.

“Following advice from the FA, we have withdrawn from the Buildbase FA Trophy.

“We are unable to fulfil our tie this Saturday due to the self-isolation of the squad.

The club will now not return to action until 24th October.

“All relevant parties have been contacted regarding self-isolation as per Government guidelines and therefore spectators at previous home games remain unaffected.

As a club we make the health and wellbeing of our supporters a priority and will continue to liaise with Public Health England to ensure the ongoing safety of our supporters.”
