Leamington have confirmed their next two fixtures have been postponed following two positive COVID-19 tests at the club.

The Brakes were due to face Darlington tomorrow and Farsley Celtic next weekend, but the National League North club have explained: “The club’s forthcoming fixtures versus Darlington FC on Saturday 17th October and Farsley Celtic FC on 24th October have both been postponed after two members of the Leamington FC first-team squad tested positive for COVID-19 in the last few days, with one of those players asymptomatic.

“No other players are currently displaying any symptoms at this moment in time, although a number will have to enter into a period of self-isolation. The above decision was made following consultation between the club’s COVID Medical Officer (CMO) and the CMO of the National League.

“This has been ratified by the National League and all players and relevant staff will now enter a period of isolation from football activity until 25th October. The club has followed strict COVID guidelines and have liaised with both Darlington and Farsley Celtic, as well as last Saturday’s opponents Chester FC.

“We, of course, wish the players a speedy recovery, and will continue to follow the laid-down protocols to try to keep all players and staff safe during this difficult time.”
