Harrop Misses Three Games After Testing Positive for Covid
Saturday, 23rd Jan 2021 14:09

New Blues loan signing Josh Harrop misses this afternoon’s game against Peterborough and is out of action for at least 10 days having tested positive for Covid-19.

Harrop joined Town for the rest of the season from Preston North End on Wednesday and was expected to be involved at some point this afternoon.

A statement on the club site reads: “The 25-year-old had reported a negative test earlier in the week when he first arrived in Suffolk, but as part of the twice-weekly testing programme, the Preston loanee returned a positive result yesterday and was immediately sent home from Playford Road.

“The rest of the Town first-team squad and staff all returned negative tests ahead of today’s meeting with Peterborough United.”

Harrop will also miss the Sunderland and Crewe games which fall within the 10-day self-isolation period.

Pitiful! Excitement has evaporated. 0-2 Posh. Drinan not up to the required standard.


RobsonWark added 14:52 – Jan 23

So what was he doing on Thursday or Friday then?

TimmyH added 15:00 – Jan 23

This is a comedy that keeps giving…saying that hope Josh gets nothing too substantial.

RobsonWark- Whatever he was Doing yesterday or the day before is irrelevant to testing positive yesterday. It does feel as though we are a bit unlucky sometimes but we are not the only team with players unavailable due to COVID. In fact Posh also have a player out with COVID so they are equally unlucky. No excuses. Let’s get the job done an turn them over !

You really couldn’t make it up..beyond belief. What a joke club we have become….dreadful

tetchris added 16:23 – Jan 23

That’s just great. Can we actually sign someone who doesn’t get ill or injured the moment they hobble into the club. Potentially he has now infected other players in the squad ffs
