England Under-19s’ clash against Scotland was abandoned midway through on Thursday afternoon after a positive Covid test came to light during the game.
The home nations clash was taking place at St George’s Park in Burton earlier today, but had to be hastily called off after a positive result emerged from one of the participants.
It is understood the positive reading was taken from a non-playing member of staff.
