King's Lynn Town's Christmas trip to Grimsby in doubt after Covid outbreak in Mariners squad

King's Lynn Town's National League trip to Grimsby Town over the Christmas period has been thrown into doubt following an increase in Covid cases within the Mariners camp.

A depleted line-up was heavily beaten 4-0 by Stockport County in the FA Trophy on Saturday and their home league game against Boreham Wood tomorrow night has also been postponed.

It leaves the game at Blundell Park on December 28 in serious jeopardy.

A statement on Grimsby's website a short while ago read: "Grimsby Town Football Club can confirm that due to an escalating number of positive COVID19 cases within the first team, Tuesday’s home fixture against Boreham Wood has been postponed.

"Despite our best efforts and daily testing, the Mariners have had a number of first team players return positive PCR tests.

"This follows a continuous regular rise in national infection numbers seen across the country.

"The club are currently in dialogue with Public Health England and the National League and will relay any information received to our supporters at the earliest opportunity."

Lynn have already had one fixture postponed this season due to Covid when their schedule trip to Altrincham was called off back in September.
