AFC Wimbledon’s FA Youth Cup tie at home to Burnley has been postponed with the FA taking the decision to suspend the competition.

The Dons were due to host the Premier League club's academy at Plough Lane tomorrow, but the match is off for the time being.

An FA statement said the following: 

"The FA can confirm its decision to temporarily suspend the 2020/21 FA Youth Cup and has discussed this with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. The health and wellbeing of players and staff are of paramount importance and The FA intends to resume the national competition once the UK Government’s current national COVID-19 lockdown ends and it is deemed safer for clubs to travel.

"The FA Youth Participation & Development Committee, which is responsible for management of the competition, will continue to review the situation and The FA will provide further updates at the earliest opportunity. For the avoidance of doubt, all matches in The FA Youth Cup are now suspended with immediate effect until further notice."
