I see it has been announced that Kettering have forfeited their FA Cup tie due to the Virus affecting a lot of their squad, what a mess for a lot of clubs hoping to make a couple of bob, doesn't bode well at all....

Boston United also have withdrawn from tonight's FA CUP match with Hemel Hempstead due to Covid.

Now Alfreton, sad it is becoming a lottery, wonder if they will put the bigger clubs out of the competition in the same circumstances?

It would be fair, reasonable and a magnanimous gesture if the FA cup Total Proceeds were divided 50:50 in games where COVID means forfeiture. In theory we could win it if every team we’re meant to play goes down with COVID beforehand :shock:

This should be laid down by the FA, now.
We’ve only started the season less than two weeks ago and it’s already becoming an expensive farce.

Aye but a bit like Brexit, we are now committed and like it or not this (football) farce will be played out to the bitter end. We just have to hope we are still standing come the end of it.

The forfeits are no different to Leyton Orient in the League Cup vs Spurs.
