Dartford fixture postponed following the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II

Saturday’s Vanarama National League South fixture against Dartford at Princes Park has been postponed following the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II. 

This is aligned with the approach that the Premier League, the EFL and the FA will take with their competitions this weekend.

It has been determined that all fixtures across English football will be postponed on Saturday, September 9th and Sunday, September 10th as a mark of respect while the country observes a period of mourning. 

A date for the rearranged fixture against the Darts will be announced once confirmed.

Tickets bought in advance will be eligible for the rearranged fixture at Princes Park. Those who wish to receive a refund should contact Dartford by emailing jack@dartfordfc.com

Supporters can read an official statement provided by the National League below:

Further to this morning’s statement by Debbie Hewitt, chair of The Football Association, all National League System, FA Trophy, and grassroots fixtures scheduled for this weekend will not take place as a mark of respect. The Queen was the FA’s patron, and Prince William is its President.

At this moment National League fixtures will go ahead as planned from Monday 12 September onwards although we understand no sporting event of any kind will be permitted on the day of The Queen’s funeral.

The decision to postpone this weekend’s fixtures is taken in line with guidance from the FA in consultation with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. The League fully supports this stance.
