Negative Tests For All Squad and Staff
Wednesday, 5th Aug 2020 09:13
The Town first-team squad and coaching staff all tested negative for Covid-19 earlier this week, the club has confirmed.
As reported, the players and staff were all tested for the first time when they arrived at Playford Road for training on Monday.
As a result of the negative tests, the squad, who began pre-season training a fortnight ago, can now move to stage two of the EFL’s Return to Training Protocols.
This allows closer contact, eventually progressing to working in lrger groups and "ultimately full team training, without social distancing possible at all times".
The players and staff will continue to be tested at regular intervals ahead of the start of the season on Saturday 12th September.
Prior to then, the club are looking to play five or six locally-based pre-season friendlies.

In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
