Waterford FC have confirmed that the second player tested for Covid-19 has received a negative result.

It means that all club activity can resume, with The Blues having drawn against Cork City in the league on Saturday.

Their clash with Sligo Rovers on Tuesday was postponed as a precaution once it emerged the club were testing a player who had reported symptoms.

Club doctor Sinead Fitzpatrick resigned from her position during the week.

An FAI statement read: "The FAI has noted that the second Waterford FC player to undergo a COVID-19 test has returned a negative result.

"The FAI has urged SSE Airtricity League clubs to continue to follow the FAI Safer Return to Play Protocol and HSE Covid-19 guidelines."
