Haverfordwest County footballers have been struck with COVID 19 which was officially announced on the club website.

Haverfordwest County were meant to travel to mid Wales to face Cefn Druids in a JD Cymru Premier fixture which was scheduled for Saturday, 14th November, but the match has been postponed as the club have released a statement confirming some of their players have tested positive for COVID-19.

“On 7th November, a first team players tested positive for Covid-19.  As the squad trained within 48 hours prior to the positive test being returned, all players and coaching staff are now self-isolating at the request of Public Health Wales. As players and staff have had no contact since this date, the 14-day isolation period is due to conclude at midnight on Friday 20th November.

“Although we feel this request is not in line with FAW Return to Play protocols and general practice during this season so far, the safety of our players and coaching staff is paramount so feel we have no choice but to adhere to this advice, and as a result the match against Cefn Druids on Saturday 14th November will be postponed.

“We had notified our previous and future opposition at the earliest opportunity, and we would like to express our sincere thanks to officials at Bala Town and Cefn Druids for their clear communication, support and understanding during this week.

“The club have satisfied all parties that all required safety protocols were followed to the letter.”
