HEREFORD FC'S game on Saturday has been postponed after a York City player tested positive for coronavirus.

The Bulls said a new date for the game, which was due to be played at Edgar Street this Saturday, will be announced as soon as possible.

Confirming the news, York City said: "York City Football Club can confirm that a player has tested positive for Covid-19.

"The club put its Covid contingency plans into action quickly and sought guidance from the National League medical team.

"Backroom staff and players across the first team and youth team, along with some office staff, will self-isolate until November 1 and the club will seek to reschedule all games that fall within that period of time.

"This impacts this Saturday's trip to Hereford and the home fixture against Kettering on the October 31. Both will be rearranged at a date to be confirmed."

A spokesperson for Hereford said: "Fans who have already purchased a match pass to watch the live stream will automatically receive an email with a unique voucher code that can be redeemed at a future game. Emails will be sent out within 48 hours.

"Supporters who have purchased a match programme will receive a printed programme delivered ahead of the rearranged game.

"Our next scheduled game takes place at Edgar Street on Tuesday, October 27 when Bradford PA visit."
