Various EFL, non league and cup matches have ended up being postponed this weekend either due to the weather or because of Covid-19.
Four English Football League clubs have had to call off multiple of their forthcoming fixtures as a player(s) have picked up the virus.
The same goes for non league clubs, with divisions called off or halted with the lockdown tiers and pandemic.
Weather has also turned rather gusty and wet, leaving pitches waterlogged or unplayable with a week to go until Christmas… and clubs at lower level really need cash of some sort to survive the tough times they are currently enduring.
