EFL to Continue But Tractor Girls' Season Suspended
Monday, 4th Jan 2021 22:20

The EFL and Premier League are set to continue behind closed doors despite England having entered a new lockdown until mid-February earlier this evening, however, the FA has confirmed that tiers three to seven of the women's pyramid have been suspended.

Ipswich Town’s last four League One games have been postponed due to positive Covid tests either among the Blues or at their opposition club.

They are due to return to action when Swindon Town visit Portman Road for a live Sky game on Saturday evening.

It’s understood that U23 and U18 football will also continue, but it’s expected U16 football and below will be paused.

And the FA has confirmed that ‘non-elite’ football, which includes tiers three to seven of the women’s pyramid and the Vitality Women’s FA Cup at its current stage, will also be suspended.

The Tractor Girls are top of tier four - FAWNL Division One South East - with a 100 per cent record without having conceded a goal and are through to round two of the Women’s FA Cup. They were due to face Leyton Orient in the league at Hornchurch on Sunday.

Elite football? Really?!

Feel so sorry for the TractorGirls here, let's hope their league campaign is actually able to get completed this season 👍

I find it staggering that any Sport should be played during a National lockdown.
More and more clubs are experiencing Covid related problems so why risk spreading the virus further than necessary by risking everyone associated with hosting and playing elite games?
I appreciate it is probably a boost for the public to still be able to see football on TV but at what potential health cost?

The Girls were the best team in the Division last season but didn't get their just rewards. They looked like they were on course to be the best team this season. Let us hope the suspension is only temporary as they clearly should be playing at a higher level.
