AFC Telford promised weekly testing

AFC Telford United and National League clubs were finally delivered encouraging news on Covid-19 testing over the weekend.

The New Bucks Head club and their fellow 65 National League members were told by the league on Saturday they will receive weekly testing at no cost to clubs.

The Bucks have long since been campaigning for regular testing to take place at ‘elite’ National League level.

Premier League and EFL are undergoing regular testing this season and Telford were unhappy at the prospect of playing on at the detriment to the health of players and staff.

Testing kits will be delivered over the course of the week with weekly testing to take place from next Monday.

The Bucks are yet to hear of any retribution for Saturday’s clash with Spennymoor not taking place.

Next Saturday’s home match against Blyth remains up in the air while the vote on the season’s resolution takes place.
