Aldershot Town’s Buildbase FA Trophy fifth round tie with Chesterfield FC initially arranged for last Saturday has been cancelled after a positive PCR antigen test.
The decision was taken following the postponement of Saturday’s tie and the subsequent return of a positive PCR antigen test, forcing the Chesterfield first-team players and management to isolate for ten days.
Under FA rules, a rescheduled tie has to be played within five days of the original fixture and the possibility of playing an Under-19 team for the away side was considered before the decision was made to forfeit the tie.
