Football: 2020 RAF Cup Final Postponed Due To COVID-19

RAF Marham's team is self-isolating following an issue with a player outside of the first-team squad.

The 2020 Royal Air Force football cup final has been postponed over a COVID-19-related issue.

RAF Marham and RAF Odiham were to go head-to-head on Thursday at the home of Oxford City.

Having beaten RAF Coningsby 5-4 in the semi-final of the inter-station competition, Marham's players are self-isolating following an issue with a player outside of the first-team squad yesterday.

Their opponents Odiham were given a bye into the final, after their match with Cyprus-based RAF Akrotiri was cancelled due to UK travel restrictions.

A new date has not been set for the cup decider, but there are hopes it can be played before the end of the month.

The RAF Plate final between RAF Cosford and RAF Digby at Oxford City’s ground will be going ahead on Thursday morning at 11am UK time.
