YORK City’s home game against Kettering Town has been rescheduled - and could see the Minstermen playing five games in 15 days.

Originally scheduled for this Saturday, October 31, the National League North match will now take place on Tuesday, December 8 (7.45pm).

The fixture was postponed last week with York players and staff self-isolating after a player tested positive for Covid-19.

York plan to livestream the game, with details to be announced later.

And unless anything changes, the new date will contribute to a hectic fixture period for the Steve Watson’s Minstermen.

On Saturday, November 28, City travel to Leamington before heading north on Tuesday, December 1 to face Blyth Spartans.

Four days later, on Saturday, December 5, York are slated to enter the FA Trophy at the second round proper along with the other 43 National League North and South sides.

Kettering follow on December 8 before City host Spennymoor Town on December 12.

There are no games lined up as yet for the subsequent Tuesday, giving the players some respite. Should City be victorious in the second round, the third round of the FA Trophy awaits on Saturday, December 19.

Kettering got their first National League North points of the season at the second time of asking last Saturday - when York were due to face Hereford - with Josh Scott scoring a brace in a 3-1 win over Bradford Park Avenue.

Last night, Kettering travelled to eight-placed Fylde.

York’s first game out of isolation remains November 7’s home game against Chester, who bounced back from their FA Cup shock defeat to Marine with a 2-1 win over Curzon Ashton.

Danny Elliott and George Glendon scored to send the Blues above Boston United into second.
