PREMIER League matches fixed for this weekend have been postponed following the passing of the inimitable Queen of England, HM Elizabeth II on Thursday.
This was announced in a brief note circulated by the League management on Friday and obtained by Stonix News.
The statement reads thus:
“At a meeting this morning, Premier League clubs paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“To honour her extraordinary life and contribution to the nation, and as a mark of respect, this weekend’s Premier League match round will be postponed, including Monday evening’s game.
“Further updates regarding Premier League fixtures during the period of mourning will be provided in due course.”
A 10-day mourning period has since commenced for the Queen while her son, Prince Charles has ascended the throne of his forebears albeit not officially in earnest.
