GTFC player tests positive for Covid-19

Tomorrow’s game between Grimsby Town and Cheltenham Town has been postponed after a member of the GTFC squad tested positive for Covid-19.

Speculation is that the player in question is midfielder Jock Curran.

This comes after Ian Holloway confirmed that Curran had missed training yesterday after he exhibited symptoms of Covid-19.

A statement from the club said:

“In line with medical advice received from the EFL, our own medical team and in line with Government guidelines, all players will now face a period of self-isolation at home. 

“The club did consider testing the squad today however, the medical advice received was that such testing would be of no effect as the incubation period of the virus being a minimum of five days, with the squad last being in contact with the player three days ago. 

“In addition, we have received confirmation from the EFL that match passes purchased for tomorrow’s fixture will be valid for the fixture when it is rearranged. A revised date for the rearranged fixture will be confirmed in due course. 

“The health and well-being the staff and players of both Grimsby Town and Cheltenham Town is of paramount importance and overrides all other considerations.

“We would like to wish the player a speedy recovery.”

The Youth Alliance fixture vs. Doncaster Rovers which was scheduled to take place tomorrow has been postponed, but as of yet, no reason has been given.
