No festive games for the Gladiators in the 20/21 season

Matlock Town’s festive fixtures at Buxton on Boxing Day and the New Years Day home clash with Gainsborough Trinity have both been postponed.

The news was expected following the announcement from the NPL yesterday (Saturday) that clubs would be allowed to postpone their festive games if both teams were in agreement. The Government also announced increased restrictions relating to the Coronavirus pandemic.

“In view of the current situation, it has been mutually agreed with Buxton and Gainsborough Trinity that the matches over the Christmas and New Year period will not be played and they will be rearranged for a future date when hopefully things will be better in the country” said a Matlock spokesman.

“We hope everyone has an enjoyable and safe Christmas and we look forward to seeing all our magnificent supporters back watching the Gladiators at some point in the future.”
