I asked John Fenwick who said

Hi John,

You are not the only one asking!

At the moment only PL and EFL matches have been postponed.

As I understand things the National League is meeting to decide their way forward and then no doubt their decision will impact on us.

At this precise moment we have heard nothing from the Isthmian League so we assume that matches are on - however if this changes then I will advise by my usual text group and then there will be an update on the website.

Kind regards,
John

You guess, I'll guess, Rex et al can guess and we'll all still be as in the dark about it.

County level and parks footy will be the last games standing.

Lets make the most of Premiership free days ahead and hope for a bigger crowd than expected and look after them and make sure they enjoy it and return.
Still playing for top 6 finish in spite of dreadful Wednesday which is still a great season

Southern League, Essex Senior and others have announced that they're off. Isthmian blazers yet to pronounce.

I think if K's volunteers, some of whom might fall into vulnerable Corona categories owing to age or other conditions, don't want the game on, then it shouldn't go ahead.

The fact that there is still uncertainty about whether sporting events should go ahead is a byproduct of the Government's current strategy which - for me at least - sends mixed messages.

Hope it's on, but ultimately this is a cross-generational community space and we need to be careful, even in a a city with a loneliness epidemic.

So if you we can catch this virus at an outdoor football match - why can't we catch it on tubes and buses - or have I missed something?

you can indeed get it on transport. you can get it sitting in a car with someone. i guess the idea is less the risk of people catching it at KGF/in the Royal Enclosure and more on the way there and in the toilets and in the pub after etc.

So why haven't we banned travelling on public transport where the risk of infection is that much higher? Just asking! To me it seems like sport is a soft target!

Travel is still needed in many cases, although there is definitely a case for reduction. Many companies, including mine, have advised against tube, train and bus travel - drive if we have to travel for meetings. Ultimately if you feel that you shouldn’t travel by tube or train then don’t. There’s very little that can be done to guarantee avoiding the virus but being sensible about everything and avoiding situations where you might be in close contact with large numbers of people seems a good option.

i'm guessing but: public transport still a necessity for many people (including healthcare workers) while K's/The Isthmian is a luxury. even in Italy, public transport continued during lockdown.

If the government strategy is to 1) minimise number of old people who get it while 2) acknowledging and accepting that lots of younger people will and should get it (to build up immunity), then there is a logic.

I can understand the older supporter may be vulnerable and
I come into that category (68),but as someone has said why
not close pubs,stop public transport etc.
How many people have died this winter from flu and respiratory
illness,in the hundreds i would think,you are far less likely to catch it
outdoors anyway so banning outdoor sport to me seems over the top.
The media in my opinion has created a siege mentality for some people
shop shelves for toilet rolls etc are empty,people swearing shouting and
fighting over every day items,it's ludicrous,the chances of contacting
this virus are small compared to the other ailments i have mentioned.
I can tell you that if you are over 65 you can get the pneumonia jab
at your GP,it gives you lifelong immunity,anyway stay healthy and
carry on,that's all you can really do.

The pubs and clubs will be packed tonight,so why not close them all
instead of picking on sporting events,as far as i know NHS ENGLAND
has given no advice that people cannot gather outdoor,so that comment
by the league officials that they are going along with NHS advice is not
true,how many of us will be standing in shops,pubs,cinemas ,clubs
over the weekend,far more likely to catch the virus in these places don't
you think.

I don’t believe we yet know the likelihood of any one individual contracting Covid-19. The current measures are not designed to stop the virus, but to delay transmission to allow medical services and others not to be swamped by huge early peaks. The longer the period over which this is spread the better the support and care any one individual can expect, so it must be in our interests to go along with these measures.

Doubt the situation is going to get any better in the next few weeks so perhaps that's it for the season?

Seeing as the country is apparently listening to experts now, Gary needs to tweak that FWP predicted final league table to show us in the play offs.

I'd hoped that non-league football, with smaller crowds in open air stadiums, could continue.

But it's not just about supporters, is it. The last place anyone should be at the moment is a sweaty, cramped changing room or a communal shower.

Meanwhile, utterly crazy that tomorrow's Six Nations game at Cardiff was only called off today.

The city's full of Sweaties and there's absolutely no reason for them to be here now!!

Must realise when tickets are purchased and cant be refunded,supporters still travel.
Would imagine Cardif will be full at hotels and bars as was Kingston was last weekend.
Although England played last week,if the game hadnt gone ahead,the town would still be busy with so many still traveling

The whole situation is bollocks! We can't have a football match in the open air, but the BBC can have a live indoor audience with recycled air for Sportaid.

Someone, somewhere needs to get their act together - it's really p*ssing me off!

VANARAMA NATIONAL,NORTH AND SOUTH matches
playing today,WOKING and SUTTON are on which makes
the decision to call off our league seem ludicrous to say the

CCL had an emergency board meeting yesterday, todays games go ahead but from tomorrow the league is suspended for two weeks. Don't be surprised if the National follow very soon

Right that's me off to the Spectrum..

Got to the Spectrum, met a few Godalming fans in the car park (their game being off), it's off waterlogged corner of the pitch!

Oh well back to clearing up the apple tree pruning.
