TWO players from Ringwood Town are self-isolating after testing positive for COVID-19, the club have announced.

Town played Christchurch in a pre-season friendly behind-closed-doors on Tuesday evening, winning 3-2.

But on Wednesday, one Ringwood player tested positive for the virus, with a second following later in the week.

"NHS have instructed both players to self-isolate for 10 days from the start of symptoms," read a club statement on Saturday.

"We wish them both a speedy recovery.

"We are following the government's guidelines. If anyone was in 'contact' with the two players on Tuesday evening then they must isolate as per the government guidelines.

"Some of the other Ringwood Town FC players and volunteers on Tuesday evening have subsequently had a test and this proved negative."

Ringwood also confirmed their clubhouse and changing rooms have been cleaned.

Christchurch boss Ollie Cherrett confirmed via Twitter on Saturday that none of their players have shown any symptoms of the virus, with many players and staff self-isolating and awaiting results of a test.
