Title on Hold: The Liverpool of Sunday League

Reuben Pinder

Christ Church East Greenwich were having a wonderful season

The Sunday League side from London were top of their league, eight points clear of second place and nine points clear of third, and required just a solitary point to gain promotion. Then the coronavirus struck.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has left many societies in lockdown, with people advised to social distance to avoid the spread of the disease. As a result, football matches at all levels of the English football pyramid have been suspended indefinitely.

We spoke to their captain about the situation and the uncertainty around the future.
