The FA have decided to temporarily suspend the 2020-21 FA Youth Cup following discussions with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and the competing clubs.
The FA statement says:
"The health and wellbeing of players and staff are of paramount importance and we intend to resume the national competition once the UK Government’s current national COVID-19 lockdown concludes and it is deemed safer for clubs to travel.
The FA Youth Participation & Development Committee, which is responsible for management of the competition, will continue to review the situation and we will provide further updates at the earliest opportunity."
The STFC Under 18's fourth round tie against Ipswich will not be played until it is deemed safe to do so.
