Following this morning’s cancellation of the scheduled FA Cup tie between Atherton Collieries and Bamber Bridge as a result of a positive case of COVID-19, and Bamber Bridge’s subsequent withdrawal from the competition, the FA have now confirmed that Atherton Collieries will automatically progress to the next round.
