Blyth Spartans AFC can confirm it has received a positive Covid-19 test and as a result is forced to forfeit this year’s FA Trophy.
Following dialogue with National League officials this afternoon, the club is required to enter a period of isolation and cancel its Second Round FA Trophy tie with Morpeth Town tonight.
Everyone who has purchased the live stream will be refunded. Refunds take 5-10 days to appear on a customer’s statement.
This will not impact any further fixtures with our National League North game with Gateshead on Boxing Day scheduled to go ahead of normal.
In the meantime, we hope everyone stays safe and we wish Morpeth well in the next round against Notts County on Saturday.
