Derbyshire's clubs prepare for lockdown lay-off

Many of Derbyshire's football clubs will be out of action for at least a month as the country prepares to go into another lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Non-elite clubs will be unable to play or train until December 2 at the earliest, effective from Thursday of this week.

That means of Derbyshire's football clubs, only Derby County, Chesterfield and Alfreton Town will be in regular action for the time being, all behind closed doors.

It is as yet unclear as to when teams will able to recommence training ahead of their respective first games back.
