This weekend's match between Walsall and Orient has been postponed. Statement from the EFL
The end of March 1974.How times change...This is probably not comparable but I remember a time, probably mid 70s when we were punished for not being able to field a side due to several of our players having flu.
I expect that Olds will be able to fill the gaps!
Never liked BuMley since. £5K in 1974 is equivalent to £50k in 2020 according to Google.The end of March 1974.
Incidentally I saw a programme for the non fixture on eBay a couple of years ago,It was not a silly price either(£20 iirc)
The fine was £5k plus £1k compensation to Scunthorpe for lost gate income.
As Isca mentioned,Bob Lord the Burnley Chairman & on the League Management Committee was not particularly helpful & suggest that if the Grecians could not fulfil fixtures then they should not be in the Football League.
Will probably be next couple of games called off too if our players are having to self-isolate for 14 days. I honestly can't see this season finishing to be honest, it's all becoming a bit of a farce.Grimsby's game with Cheltenham has been called off after a Grimsby player has tested positive for Covid.
