Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture at Mansfield Town has been postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the First Team and Club...
Following medical guidance, Stevenage Football Club informed the EFL of the situation on Thursday morning and have been in communication with them during the evening and today.
There have been a significant number of positive cases in the Club Offices, backroom staff and Foundation staff this week, whilst seven of the First Team that started or played in last Saturday’s EFL game are unavailable with COVID-19/illness, in addition to eight senior players unavailable with various injuries.
The outbreak has left the squad with twelve available players including two goalkeepers and an 18-year-old recalled from loan. The Club have communicated fully with the EFL at every stage and explored every option before this decision was made.
We will update supporters with the date of the rearranged fixture in due course.
