BRIDPORT'S league match with Chipping Sodbury Town has been postponed after the Gloucestershire side received three positive Covid-19 test results.

Chipping Sodbury have now booked in all their first-team players for tests.

Jamie Manley's 19th-placed Bees were due to host bottom club Town in Toolstation Western League Premier Division action tomorrow.

Town drew 4-4 with Hallen on Tuesday evening. Two of the Sods' players have since tested negative for Covid-19.

Speaking to Echosport, Chipping Sodbury secretary Geoff Endicott said the club is working to establish all teams who may have had contact with the infected players.

He said: "We've got three players with positive test results.

"All our players, staff and management will now be receiving tests.

"We've got three senior male teams, two under-18 sides and a ladies' team. We're doing everything possible to make sure everyone gets tested.

"All the first-team squad have had their tests booked and it's a question now of working through the clubs.

"All the senior games are off in local football as well as the Western League fixture."

Chipping Sodbury travelled to Buckland Athletic for their 0-0 draw last weekend on a coach.

Both the infected players and those with negative results were on the vehicle.

Endicott added: "We had a game against Hallen on Tuesday night and I've spoken to them.

"I've spoken to Buckland, who we played last Saturday down at Newton Abbot.

"One of the problems was the fact that all our guys went down on the coach together.

"Maybe that had some effect on the infection of other players. Similarly, we've got two others that were on the coach that have tested negative."

No date for fulfilment of Bridport's fixture has been confirmed.

The Bees next play Ilfracombe in the FA Vase on Saturday, October 10 (3pm).
