Friday 20th November 2020

WELLING UNITED have been notified that one of their playing staff has tested positive for Covid-19.

As a result, the club have taken the decision, along with the League, to postpone tomorrow’s National League South home game against Havant & Waterlooville.

All of Welling United's games are being played behind closed doors until further notice, just like all Premier League, EFL Championship, EFL League One, EFL League Two, National League, National League North and National League South fixtures.

“Following this Covid-19 event, the entire playing squad and management team have entered a 14-day period of self-isolation as instructed by The National League, taking the advice of Public Health England and the League Medical Officer,” said a club statement.

Further the postponement of tomorrow’s match, Welling United’s games against St Albans City (24 November), Bath City (28 November) and Braintree Town (1 December) have also been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.

“We will continue to be guided by Public Health England and National League protocols in this period,” added the Park View Road outfit.

The club are working with their streaming partner to provide fans’ refunds where necessary. 

"If you’ve already purchased a stream for a postponed game and don’t require a refund, you will have stream access when the re-arranged match is played," added the club.

The streaming company can be contacted by emailing them at livesupport@247.tv

Bradley Quinton's side are presently sitting in the bottom five in the table with six points from their opening seven games, while for the record Havant & Waterlooville are in eighth-place with 10 points from their five outings.
