The National League has confirmed that midweek fixtures – including Yeovil Town’s trip to Eastleigh – are to go ahead following the postponement of its weekend schedule.

The league followed the Premier League and EFL in calling off fixtures as a mark of respect to The Queen, who died on Thursday.

In a statement on Sunday, it updated: “The League can confirm that further to the announcement that the funeral for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be held on Monday 19 September, National League fixtures for week commencing Monday 12 September will go ahead as scheduled.

Clubs, for all fixtures up until the funeral, will observe a one-minute silence prior to the game and will wear black armbands as a mark of respect to Her Majesty.

Following the trip to Eastleigh, the Glovers face a visit from Chesterfield  next weekend and one assumes there is no reason why that shouldn’t go ahead.

After that, Boreham Wood are the next opponents for Chris Hargreaves’ side at Huish Park on September 24th
