Alfreton Town FC’s mid-week clash against King’s Lynn will go ahead as planned following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll.
All league football matches – including Alfreton Town’s trip to Boston – were postponed over the weekend after the Queen died at Balmoral Castle on Thursday (September 8) at the age of 96.
However, the National League has issued a statement confirming that fixtures scheduled for this week will go ahead as planned.
The statement says: “The League can confirm that further to the announcement that the funeral for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll will be held on Monday, September 19, National League fixtures for week commencing Monday, September 12, will go ahead as scheduled.
“Clubs, for all fixtures up until the funeral, will observe a one-minute silence prior to the game and will wear black armbands as a mark of respect to Her Majesty.
Alfreton Town FC will travel to King’s Lynn tomorrow (Tuesday, September 13). Kick-off is at 7.45pm.
