Morecambe v Derby postponed after EFL decision

Morecambe’s League One game with Derby County at the Mazuma Stadium tomorrow has been postponed.

The decision has been taken to call off all EFL fixtures over the weekend, as a mark of respect following the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

In a statement, the EFL said: ‘’Further to discussions on Friday morning it has been determined that all EFL fixtures from 9-10 September will be postponed as a mark of respect by the National Sport to the passing of HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

‘’This is aligned with the approach that the Premier League and the FA will take with their competitions this weekend.

‘’Further information, in respect of how football, Clubs and their supporters will commemorate Her Majesty’s reign will be confirmed at an appropriate point.

‘’Details regarding rearranged games will be announced in due course.’’

This weekend’s fixtures involving Northern Premier League clubs have also been postponed.

That means Lancaster’s fixture with Liversedge won’t go ahead.

A statement from the NPL said: ‘’We have been awaiting confirmation from The Football Association, and can now announce that all National League System, FA Trophy, and grassroots fixtures scheduled for this weekend will not take place as a mark of respect.

‘’The decision to cancel this weekend’s fixtures was taken in accordance with protocol, namely by The FA as the governing body.

‘’It is one which the League fully supports.’’
