Naomh Colmcille have reaffirmed their stance over not fielding in tonight’s Regional League fixture against Gaeil Fhánada having suspended club activities ‘to prevent the potential spread of Covid 19.’
The Newtowncunningham-based club on Friday night made the decision having played a challenge match last weekend against Glack – one of 10 Derry club who have taken measures to call a halt following outbreaks of CoVid-19 in the area.
However, this morning Naomh Colmcille have stated that reports in the media that they would take to the field tonight are inaccurate.
Donegal GAA didn't give @Naomh_Colmcille guidance to suspend club activities contrary to their recent tweet. Rather, the club was directed to @officialgaa GAA protocols agreed with the HSE @Naomh_Colmcille have not advised the County Board that they have actual or suspected cases
