HEYBRIDGE Swifts have been advised that Saturday’s Buildbase FA Trophy third round qualifying tie at Biggleswade Town will go ahead after a number of “Covid precautionary measures” at the Bedfordshire club, writes JON LONGMAN.

Town postponed Tuesday night’s Southern League South Central Premier Division clash with leaders Coalville Town as an emergency measure.

Swifts secretary Steve Crisp said: “I can confirm that Saturday's Trophy match is ON.

“I spoke with their secretary this morning and apparently they had a player who had returned an inconclusive Covid test, hence postponing last night's game, but he has since retested as negative.”

Steve has reminded Swifts fans that spectators are welcome at Biggleswade if they follow the standard match day Covid guidelines.
