Tomorrow’s Thurlow Nunn Premier Division clash between Stowmarket Town and Ely City has been called off.

Two members of Ely’s squad have shown Covid-19 symptoms and they have taken tests.

It’s not the first time a local football match has been called off because of Covid-19 concerns.

Last month the FA Cup extra preliminary round tie between Newmarket Town and Walsham-le-Willows was cancelled due to one of the away side’s players testing positive for Covid-19. Walsham had to forfeit the tie.

Following that, Bury Town were forced to cancel a scheduled pre-season friendly at home against Braintree Town as the Blues had came up against the infected player during a friendly against Walsham.
