THE Bradford & District FA Saturday Senior Cup semi-finals scheduled for this week have been postponed due to fears over the coronavirus.

Idle were due to take on Field at Eccleshill United's ground this evening while Toller were set to face Salts at the same venue on Wednesday. But both ties have been called off in light of the current situation.

It is also likely that the remaining Bradford FA Sunday Senior Cup semi-final clash between West Bowling and Bradford Moor - scheduled for Tuesday, March 31 at Thackley - will also be postponed, though this has yet to be confirmed.

Westwood Park have already reached the Sunday Cup final after beating Tyersal Sunday 4-2.

Decisions on when the ties will be played have yet to be made, with the prospect of them being held at the start of next season a possibility.

As things stand, the Football Association is still allowing grassroots football to take place.

A statement on the West Riding County FA website read: “Consistent with Government advice, the FA is recommending that grassroots football is able to continue as usual for now, with each league or centre making its own individual decision based on its local situation and the availability of players and officials.

"However, we would fully respect and support any leagues, centres or teams that wish to postpone fixtures in light of the Covid-19 virus."
