How on earth can they play, I thought it was a government requirement for issolation?

You’d imagine it’s because the contact was more than 5 days ago, thus making a test accurate, which is reasonable.

What that doesn’t cover is how our games against Hull and Bradford are off.

I haven't listened to PD's interview (anyone got a link?). We got a positive test result on a Friday. I guess that probably wipes out Saturday and Tuesday games just because of the lack of days. Maybe the days worked out better for Stevenage?

It looks like the chain of events is one player tested positive so they tested everyone yesterday, two more came back positive from the latter test yesterday.

So when does the five days start?

I’m guessing Stevenage can afford multiple testing with all that Burger King money.

We aren’t playing because of the incubation period. To get an accurate idea of if other players have contracted it from the player that tested positive, you need to wait a certain number of days before doing the test. Hence no game. No idea how or why Stevenage are playing. But they shouldn’t be according to the letter of the law.

Up The Mariners!

Is the incubation period 5 days? I had an op 11 days ago and was tested 3 days before I went in DPOW.

Philip Day comes on 9:30 minutes in if it's any help.

It feels like we took this decision unilaterally. Decided we needed to isolate the squad and couldn't fulfil the fixture. Something doesn't add up.

I think we’ll end up losing the points for the Cheltenham game and potentially the Bradford one.

Fenty has chosen his time quite well to take up a seat in the background whilst Philip Day takes all the flack!! I don’t doubt for one minute that this all centres around his decisions.

I am really concerned as I genuinely think the Club is on its arris!!
