A number of positive coronavirus tests among AFC Wimbledon’s “first-team group” means Saturday’s FA Cup first-round tie at Barrow has been postponed.
AFC Wimbledon said via their website: Saturday’s Emirates FA cup match against Barrow is postponed due to a number of positive results for Covid-19 amongst the first team group of AFC Wimbledon.
Testing of all first-team players and staff is now taking place, as well as Under-18 squad members as a precautionary measure.
The first team group will now all self isolate.
The match will be rescheduled on a date to be confirmed.
– STATEMENT ENDS –
Barrow manager David Dunn express his frustration but said safety comes first.
“We were out on the training pitch and just about to start doing some more work on our shape for the game so it’s disappointing for everyone,” Dunn explained.
“It’s unfortunate but it is what it is, and I think there’s a chance that clubs will suffer from these postponements here and there but we have to do everything we can to keep everyone safe and healthy, that’s the most important thing.
“As much as we’re frustrated, we’ve had a packed schedule of late so this gives us a chance to let the players rest their legs, have a couple of days off and then come back fresh and ready to go again next week.
“We’re really lucky because we have Ryan (Sutherland) here at the training ground working really hard to ensure we have precautions in place, we’re doing the right things and we’re ticking all the boxes.
“I know lots of people in Barrow will know Ryan and credit to him for the job he does for the Football Club.
“We’ve had the EFL in this morning looking at the new training ground and what measures we have in place and I think they were impressed – and that’s down, in no small part, to his efforts.”
