No fans at Wembley after all for the Community Shield
Yes the summer is almost over, and the curtain-raiser for next season is already nearly upon us – scheduled for August the 29th. This was being considered as a pilot event to allow a limited number of supporters to attend a football match for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic.
But since similar tests in county cricket and snooker had to be abandoned due to a rise in Covid-19 cases, we believe that the FA are unlikely to press ahead with their plans.
It would have been an opportunity for fans to get a look at our new signing, left back Kostas Tsimikas who you might have seen play against Wolves in the Europa league last week.
And sadly at this stage we don’t know when that is gonna happen. The government announced last month it hoped to be able to allow fans into Premier League games and other sporting events from October 1, subject to coronavirus guidelines. But it remains to be seen whether that will go ahead.
In the meantime, we’ll keep on eye on that news, plus any transfer rumours that pop up. While we’re doing that, you go and enjoy the weather.
