Bedford withdraw from Trophy
« on: December 16, 2020, 04:17:36 PM »
"Bedford Town FC can confirm we have withdrawn from this season's Buildbase FA Trophy. Since receiving news of a player testing positive for COVID-19 yesterday, the club have had the whole squad tested. Unfortunately, today we can confirm that several more players have tested positive. In addition to this, a member of the management has also received a positive result.

Unfortunately, this leaves us in an impossible position to field a side on Saturday for the re-arranged fixture at Alfreton Town. We have informed them and the FA of our decision, and would like to place on record our thanks to them for their understanding and assistance over the last few days.

The club understand how frustrating this must be for our supporters, having enjoyed much success on the road in the FA Trophy this season. However, as a club, we have agreed that the safety of our team, club and society as a whole must come first. Hence our decision to withdraw from the competition."

If Clubs that are currently not carrying out tests on their players and staff were to do so, it does make you wonder how many would find that they have some players or staff with positive results.   :dontknow:

Quite a few, because there'll be a number that are asymptomatic, like I suspect has happened at Bedford.

Lynn could have a number, but until one player shows symptoms, then gets tested, won't really know about any others because they won't be tested till then.
