BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have confirmed their behind closed doors friendly with Yorkshire Amateur will go ahead tonight.

Some doubt was cast over whether the game would be played after Avenue cancelled their clash with Grantham Town at the weekend due to one of their players contracting Covid-19 symptoms.

However, with the players last contact with the individual being more than 72 hours after the symptoms showed, according to Government guidance, the period was long enough to ensure it was not contiguous.

Avenue issued this statement late last night: "Tomorrow's game with Yorkshire Amateur will be going ahead behind closed doors as planned, with a 7.30 kick off.

"After we took the precautionary action to isolate the first team bubble on Friday, after one of the players showed COVID symptoms, we spent the last few days in consultation with our medical officer and reviewing the National League and Government protocols and guidance.

"As a result of these reviews we can release the players from isolation as their last contact with the symptomatic player was over 72 hours before the symptoms showed and at that time he wouldn’t have been contagious according to Government advice.

"Based on the above and in agreement with the medical officer tomorrow's game will go ahead as planned, and all player and staff in the bubble have been released from their isolation with immediate effect."

The club also added they will be trialling a live video stream service to watch the match, which will be the first played on the new 3G Horsfall surface.
