St Albans City say that they only received confirmation that tonight’s match with Dulwich Hamlet was postponed earlier today.

The National League South fixture was set to take place at St Albans, though Dulwich have been among the clubs to publicly state their unwillingness to continue playing in light of the ongoing uncertainty for Step 2 sides this season.

St Albans City have said this afternoon: “We first requested the usual fixture documentation from DHFC last Thursday and more recently communicated with the Vanarama National League for clarity.

“Our pitch is in great shape and The Saints first team had been briefed, prepared and were told to report to Clarence Park this evening, as usual. We did not receive confirmation that the game is called off until lunchtime today.

“We realise this means loyal supporters of both teams will be disappointed and we are sorry that we won’t be bringing our livestream into your homes this evening. We will be in touch with anyone who has already purchased a livestream pass to arrange a refund.

“It is this club’s intention to honour all of our league fixtures, pending the outcome of the National League board’s request for clubs to vote on the conclusion of the 20/21 season. Thank you for bearing with us in these rapidly changing times.”
