I have just read in the match report that there are no sponsors this season.

In the Telegraph today the results are all down as Checkatrade trophy so I assumed that they had taken it on again obviously incorrectly.

Social distancing did not look great on the terrace behind the goal at Cambridge. Loads of room in the away stand behind the other goal.

This is an interesting point. Controlling numbers is easy, but ensuring social distancing on terraces is always going to be difficult. It is quite possible that these test events will deem terracing to be 'unsafe' in the current circumstances, leaving those with terracing with further capacity restrictions as they may only be able to use their seated areas.

The Club had planned for a crowd of 2000 and had issued tickets accordingly. That capacity has now been halved following the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday afternoon and in discussion with relevant safety authorities, the Club has had to take the difficult and disappointing decision to play behind closed doors. This is no one’s fault - and everyone recognises that the national situation has changed - but it was felt that we would have been left with too many invalid tickets in circulation for a game where safety has to be the number one priority. Even with reticketing and regular direct communication to all fans over the next 24 hours, the short timeline means that the Club cannot entirely mitigate the risk to fans and stewards of people arriving in good faith for the game with tickets that are invalid and being unable to attend given the reduced capacity. Therefore, whilst it is a difficult decision to cancel the pilot, it is the right one in circumstances where we must all prioritise public health and safety.
