YORK City remain ninth in the National League North following another enforced weekend out of action - as more restrictions were announced.

On Saturday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, pictured (Alberto Pezzali/PA Wire), announced a four-week national lockdown, starting Thursday.

‘Elite’ sport has been given the go-ahead for the month ahead, with the Premier League and Football League told they can continue.

Steps 1 and 2 have previously been classed as elite, suggesting they could be allowed to go on, though explicit guidance is awaited.

Grassroots and amateur sport are expected to be paused.

Kettering Town were the scheduled visitors on Saturday to City, who missed out as players and staff completed a period of self-isolation after a player tested positive for Covid-19.

The Kettering fixture has been rearranged for December 8.

York’s first league game post-isolation is due to be a home game against Chester. The Seals lost 2-1 at table-toppers Gloucester City, who maintained their perfect start to term.

AFC Fylde went second with a 2-0 defeat of Farsley Celtic, earning the Coasters 12 points from four games.
