Well done Boston.  I am gutted.  But in the end the right thing to do. Can you imagine the bad publicity we would get if the virus spread.  Get well soon lads.
Never keep up with the Joneses, drag them down to your level ...............it's cheaper.

It has been classed as a "walkover" for Hemel Hempstead.
United we stand..................

I think they were forced to forfeit the game. Not sure if this has been added this year to the competition rules. You can be sure if it has the big boys will get round it.
