York City’s stop-start season has come to a juddering halt once again after another player tested positive for Covid-19.
The club issued a statement today (Friday) saying: “York City Football Club can confirm that a player has tested positive for Covid-19.
“All backroom staff and players across the first team will self-isolate until 25 November and the club will seek to reschedule all games that fall within that period of time.”
That means the postponement of these four fixtures:
- Kidderminster – away (scheduled for Sat 14 Nov)
- Gateshead – home (Tue 17 Nov)
- AFC Fylde – home (Sat 21 Nov)
- Hereford FC – away (Tue 24 Nov).
The 14 days isolation period follows National League guidance.
But it means City are building up a significant backlog of games.
Two fixtures were postponed when a City player tested positive last month.
And the game against Chester on 7 November was called out after a number of positive coronavirus tests in the Chester camp.
One fan commented on social media: “No way we will complete this season.”
