Non league fixtures postponed due to coronavirus and the weather

Many non league fixtures have been postponed due to the rise number of cases in coronavirus and the weather causing pitches to be waterlogged this weekend.

A big number of games has been called off with players and staff of various clubs picking up Covid-19, whilst others are prevented from playing their fixtures due to the area of the club being at the new tier 3 level that Boris Johnson proposed this week.

For most of this month, a petition had been signed by over 170,000 supporters to get fans back into stadium, which will now be discussed by the government. However with a number of counties going back into severe lockdown, the chances of fans being allowed back is looking bleak.

Popular Twitter user and journalist Ollie Bayliss, who covers a wide range of non league football, has claimed that the North West Counties League is asking clubs if they’d support suspending the season.

Clubs are being asked to vote on 3 options following the local rise in Covid-19, and number of games being called off either due to restrictions or waterlogged pitches.

The three options includes suspending the season until end of October 2020, suspending games for clubs in ‘tier 3’ lockdowns or continuing the season.

Steeton manager Roy Mason wants the FA and North West Counties League to “start looking at a plan b” in case Non League Football is stopped in the coming weeks or if a full season is unlikely to be completed.

AFC Liverpool have postponed their next three fixtures because of the new rules affecting Merseyside.

It’s looking bleak for the Isle of Man, who are unlikely to even play at all and several other clubs are unable to play because of restrictions.

There’s also problems prior to postponing games, caused by positive tests, players in self-isolation or bad weather are taken into account.

Five fixtures are postponed today due to Covid across the National League and National League North, whilst there is also a fair few effected in leagues further down the English football pyramid.
