Due to COVID related reasons our Boxing Day fixture V St Albans has been postponed. St Albans have released the following statement;
"This morning the Club agreed with the Vanarama National League to postpone the Boxing Day fixture against Hemel Hempstead Town at Clarence Park, and the following away game against Slough Town.
This season the Club has been working closely with local company Lab Solutions, to conduct frequent and regular lateral flow tests on the playing, coaching and back-room staff. As a result we have been able to closely monitor any exposures to COVID-19 and to maintain the highest level of vigilance which has kept us playing home and away fixtures, in safety and confidence.
As a result of these procedures, the strict protocols that the Club has in place indicate the latest rounds of testing,conducted last night, are beyond acceptable tolerance. Two players have returned positive COVID-19 test results and, whilst the squad itself is of sufficient size to cope without them, further test results are awaited.
Our first priority is to prevent the spread of the virus and so, we have taken the decision that it would be inappropriate to bring two sets of players and coaching staff together at Clarence Park on 26th December and this match and the two that follow must be postponed to protect the wellbeing and safety of all concerned. "
We'd like to take this opportunity to wish the players and staff of St Albans a speedy recovery
