GWION | HEALTH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

13 March 2020

"Health is more important than anything, including football, so we will follow the guidelines and hopefully keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible," says Edwards

Gwion Edwards agreed with managar Paul Lambert that football league matches should be suspended amid concerns over the outbreak of Covid-19.

Speaking to iFollow Ipswich this morning the Town full-back and winger said public health should be of paramount importance and the right decision, in his opinion, would be to postpone this weekend's fixtures at the very least.

Blues were due to face Bristol Rovers away from home tomorrow, but the EFL has now declared that all football activity scheduled to take place this weekend and up until 3 April will be postponed.

"We're not in a great situation and it is worrying to hear more and more cases being confirmed," Gwion said.

"Health is more important than anything, including football, so we will follow the guidelines and hopefully keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible.

"In other leagues games have been called off so I think it's right that the governing bodies here look at doing the same.

"I know playing games behind closed doors is being discussed and if that's what we have to do then we'll get on with it. It's not great because fans make football at stadiums and you always want to play in an atmosphere but again health is what matters most so if it helps in anyway then it's something to look at.

"None of us know exactly what will happen in the long term but major sporting events are being postponed so it shows the severity of the situation. If the season has to be played into the summer then it's not ideal but it's something we'll get on with."
