Notts County have withdrawn from this season’s FA Cup following two more players testing positive for COVID-19.

In addition to the postponement of Notts’ upcoming National League matches away to FC Halifax Town and Aldershot Town, this means that King’s Lynn Town will be given a bye to the first round of the FA Cup. The two sides were due to meet this weekend in the fourth round qualifying.

After four members of Neal Ardley’s squad tested positive last week, the club scheduled another round of testing this Wednesday to identify any further infections, leading to the two further positive results.
