The uncertainty quite rightly led to Saturday's National League game at Wealdstone being postponed while the club awaited results.

A club statement said: "Dover Athletic can confirm that all the management, backroom staff, and players have tested negative for Covid-19 after the club received the results on Saturday evening.

"Training was cancelled on Friday and all were tested privately at Crabble before being sent home as a precaution after the club was made aware of the situation on Thursday evening.

"It means manager Andy Hessenthaler’s squad will return to training on Monday and Tuesday’s National League game against Woking at Crabble will go ahead as scheduled."

Dover sit 22nd in the National League with six points from their first seven games.
