More matches postponed due to impact of storm leaving grounds wrecked

Friday nights 8pm televised Premier League fixture between Aston Villa and Newcastle has become the first football match to be postponed due to a covid-19 outbreak.

An outbreak at Newcastle United’s Darsley Park training ground, resulted in their appeal to have Friday’s visit to Aston Villa postponed a later date, accepted by the Premier League. The Premier League say each request will be judged on a case-by-case basis with no right to appeal if the League insist the fixture must be completed.

Newcastle United’s players have been told to stay away from the Darsley Park and have not trained since last week. Both players and staff have been tested with those who tested positive or in the inner circle of those who have tested positive told to self isolate.

It is understood that both players and staff self-isolating have been warned not to discuss the matter between themselves. Newcastle are not commenting on the situation but have confirmed that the training ground remains closed.

Newcastle currently are currently 13th in the Premier League Table, following an emphatic away win at Crystal Palace last Friday.
