Following on from discussions in the last 24 hours with the leader of Knowsley Council Graham Morgan, the club have this afternoon been asked by the council with immediate effect, for games played at the IP Truck Parts stadium to take place behind closed doors without fans. As such, we feel we have no other option but to follow this request for our Reserves fixture tomorrow.
The council have also asked that we make note that any game Prescot Cables play in an area under local lockdown measures, fans should be advised not to travel.
We currently do not have a timeframe for how long this will last, we understand the government restrictions are to be reviewed every 2 weeks. We hope a fall in Covid-19 cases in the borough brought about by the restrictions will allow our loyal fans to return to the stadium.
Due to this, tomorrows reserve game fixture will be behind closed doors and a refund will be issue for any tickets that have been purchased.
We will provide further updates regarding the first team fixtures in the coming days.
We would to thank Knowsley Council for their continued support and we will be working closely with them in the coming days and weeks, and we will push the case to show how we believe we can provide a Covid secure matchday experience, in an outside environment, that we believe is a huge benefit to peoples mental health and wellbeing and provides them with an escape from the rigors of daily life for 90 minutes, especially under these strange times due to the effects of Covid-19.
The club will be making no further comments at this time.
