A club spokesperson said: “Unfortunately our men's first team has been affected by Covid-19.

"Following the previous weekend's game one player tested positive and he had driven three other players to Lichfield. This meant that four players had to isolate for 14 days, including two goalkeepers.

"In these circumstances we had to concede the game to Barford Tigers scheduled for Sunday.
