Bromley have postponed all of their Christmas fixtures after positive Covid-19 cases in their playing squad.
The National League outfit were due to play three fixtures over that period but all of them will need to be rescheduled.
“Following confirmed positive Covid-19 test results within the squad, the club has been placed into 10-day isolation period with immediate effect,” said Bromley in a statement on their club website.
“The safety of our players and staff has always been at the forefront of our actions during this pandemic and, in line with Government and National League guidance, the club will now be closed for first-team activity and staff will isolate for 10 days.
“We will update supporters on any further news but for now supporters should note that our Boxing Day home fixture will be postponed, as will our two away fixtures at Dagenham & Redbridge and Sutton United. New dates for these matches will be confirmed in due course.
“In the meantime, we wish members of our staff a quick recovery and we hope everyone in the community is keeping safe and well at this time.”
