Diamonds have reported several positive Covid tests and the game was called opff at 9.3am today.

Elsewhere Stamford AFC’s battle with Yaxley in the Northern Premier Midlands Division at the Zeeco Stadium today (3pm) should be a cracker. While Yaxley were completing a hat-trick of wins with a 3-2 success over Sporting Khalsa last weekend, the Daniels were outplaying leaders Ilkeston in a 0-0 draw away from home.

Spalding United’s new manager Brett Whaley will have to wait for his first game in charge as their home game against Carlton today was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch, but the club he left, Wisbech Town, do host fellow strugglers Soham Town Rangers.
