This won't be the last game to fall victim to this I'm afraid.

Does this mean that the Brackley game will be off as well?

Yes. 10 days isolation for the whole squad. Massive disappointment but Covid still a big problem. Possible silver lining gives AA more time to bring in another defender. Good job the NLN fixtures mean there are plenty of available Tuesday nights to fit games in.

So begins another farcical season. :thumbdown:
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Perhaps change the title to reference the Telford game so as not to confuse with future matches.

What a bugger - really looking forward to this afternoon, however shows that the correct Covid protocols are in place at the Club. I'm sure it will not be the only match off during the season.

I wonder how many won’t see this news? And turn up…

On the downside, it will also mean that, as with preseason, our first games of the season will be against teams that have had a better chance to be match fit and organised.

I hope the players concerned all make a swift recovery.

I guess other teams will fall foul of this too. Telford and Brackley will now have at best one game whilst others will have played two. We will be two games behind most of the league, but we are where we are and must make the most of it I suppose. Time to get a player or two in maybe? Training will be fragmented at best though.

Gutted.

Even worse from the team's perspective is that the whole squad has to self isolate for 10 days - so no training as well as missing our first two matches. After already missing a chunk of pre-season and now this, we'll be miles behind in sharpness by the time we kick a ball competitively.

Gateshead game off too. Its getting daft whole squads having to isolate just because some players test positive, just make those testing positive isolate!

Only if fully vaccinated. Age of the players - probably not.

You’d like to think as semi professional sportsmen they would be.

If all or most have to self isolate for 10 days from today then that would take it until Tuesday 24 th assuming today is classed as day 1. We could then presumably train Tuesday and Thursday prior to playing Alfreton on Saturday 28th. It will mean 3 full weeks without a game since Whitby on August 7th.
Not ideal but we will just have to make the best of it. Might give Nelson a little more time to sharpen up and of course have Charman available. Hopefully in the near future all players will be double jabbed and things will be easier to manage.

Not really up to the players it is down to age. Don’t think there was ever any priority for sportsmen in Covid vaccination programme and they will have to wait at least 8 weeks from their first jab to receive the second one.

A huge shame after the build-up and excitement over this last week.

Those that have been fully-vaccinated shouldn’t have to self-isolate from Monday, so hopefully we can get a large percentage of the squad in on Tuesday & Thursday to train.

This enforced break may give a couple of the new signings to ease in and give Nelson another week or two to build up his fitness. Every cloud and all of that.

The vaccine roll-out for under 30s only started in early June so it's highly likely a lot won't have had 2 jabs.

Putting Long Covid and any further infections to one side, you wonder how fit the Covid sufferers can actually be on the 28th? Fit enough for selection?

Flashscore aren't up to speed. Chester & Leamington off, but we're still down to KO at three. :roll:

It is 8 weeks between jabs 1 & 2.

I know quite a few individuals <25 years old that have already had both doses.

They might have tested positive but that doesn’t mean they are going to be laid low with it.Chances are they get cold symptoms and shake it off quickly .

I know loads of people now that have been double vaccinated but have still managed to get Covid again although not to many symptoms.

Good start to the season sitting in 11th position 3 points off top and a game in hand.
Blyth are 2nd must be the first time in 2 years they have been out of the relegation zone!
