Having now gone over two weeks without a fixture, Harrogate Town captain Josh Falkingham spoke to the club’s website about the impact a life without football is having.

He said: “As time has gone on and the severity of the situation has become clear, it has been hard, to be honest. We thought the country would shut down for a week or two, but I don’t think anyone thought it would get to this stage.

“It’s been really tough, you take things for granted in life and football is one of them. For us players to be able to do what we love as a job and have that taken away is a real sad state of affairs.

“The usual characters have been nice and lively and keeping spirits up in the group chat, but I think it’s tough for them too. Everyone is just missing each other really, the sooner we get back to normality the better for everyone.

“That being said, the main thing is the health and safety of absolutely everyone, that is paramount, so as much as we are gutted, frustrated and severely bored, the main thing that has to come out of this is that everyone gets through it and comes out on the other side.”
