Scarborough Athletic to stream FA Cup clash against Ashton United online after being forced to hold game behind closed doors
Scarborough Athletic are set to stream their FA Cup clash at home against Ashton tomorrow night online after being forced to hold game behind closed doors.
An increase in coronavirus cases in the Borough of Scarborough has led to both Scarborough Athletic and Whitby Town being forced to hold their games behind closed doors.
A club statement said: "Recent spikes in local Covid-19 infections in North Yorkshire and in particular Scarborough, have led to communications between the club, North Yorkshire County Council Public Health and Scarborough Borough Council.
"During these communications, Public Health informed us that they could not support this event.
"Therefore, in the interests of the health of both our supporters and the wider community of Scarborough, it was both right and necessary to make this decision.
"We wish to thank Ashton United for their understanding and support on this matter."
The live stream will be available 10 minutes before kick-off at 7.35 pm and has been priced at £5.00.
