Shrimps clash with Sheffield Wednesday goes ahead after EFL confirm resumption of schedule

Morecambe’s game with Sheffield Wednesday in League One will go ahead after the EFL confirmed a resumption of fixtures.

The Shrimps were without a game at the weekend following the decision to pause all football fixtures following the passing of Her Majesty, the Queen, last week.

Derek Adams’ men will face the Owls at the Mazuma Stadium tomorrow (Tuesday September 13), kick off at 7:45pm.

A statement from the EFL said: ‘’The EFL fixture programme will return as scheduled from Tuesday 13 September, with tributes to be paid to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II at grounds around the country.

‘’A minute’s silence will be held before matches, with black armbands to be worn by participants, flags to be flown at half-mast and the National Anthem to be played in stadiums.

‘’With a national policing plan now in operation, the League and Clubs will continue to work with forces in respect of any challenges that may emerge regarding policing of specific fixtures.

‘’Consideration to individual circumstances will be made on a case-by-case basis, in line with standard match Safety Advisory Group (SAG) protocols.’’
