OXFORD City's next three games have been postponed after the Vanarama National League brought in a suspension to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak.

The competition played on over the weekend, amid plenty of criticism, but following a board meeting today it was decided to halt action until at least April 3.

It brings them into line with the Premier League and EFL.

A statement read: "At its board meeting on Friday, the National League decided to use its best endeavours to keep its season going in the face of unprecedented adversity.

"However, with the current coronavirus (COVID-19) reaching global pandemic levels it has to accept that the situation is now out of its own control.

"In the knowledge of the government measures now announced including not to support sporting events with emergency services workers it is clearly not practical for its fixtures to be fulfilled in the immediate future."

And in the wake of Boris Johnson's announcement this afternoon, the Football Association has now recommended grassroots football to bring in postponements.
