Club statement

27 October 2020

Scunthorpe United can confirm our next three Sky Bet League Two games have been postponed due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases amongst the playing and coaching staff.

Due to these cases, the club has advised the EFL it is unable to safely fulfil the fixtures against Salford City (Tuesday, October 27th), Colchester United (Friday, October 30th) and Port Vale (Tuesday, November 3rd) at present.

Following testing on Monday, a total of eight players have now tested positive for COVID-19, with a further 10 having to self-isolate due to coming into close contact with those particular players, leaving just 10 players available. As a precaution, training for the unaffected players and staff will also cease for seven days.
The club is following all of Public Health England and the EFL's COVID-19 protocols and will not name the players in question. We ask that their request for privacy and confidentiality are respected at this time.

We wish those affected a swift and safe recovery, and look forward to welcoming them back to the club soon.

iFollow match passes that have already been bought for the postponed games can be used for the rearranged fixtures.
