Key step: Covid testing in the Irish League will continue

Coleraine chairman Colin McKendry says he's delighted the Bannsiders have made a financial contribution to maintain Covid-19 testing in the Danske Bank Premiership.

The testing for top-flight clubs and match officials has been extended thanks to a contribution from Linfield and Coleraine, who are covering the total cost of the next four-week block.

After the self-imposed fortnight's break last month, an initial four-week testing initiative was announced, which has now been prolonged, thanks to the 'generous contribution' from the Blues and Bannsiders 'as the clubs that represented the league in Uefa Club Competitions this season', according to a NI Football League statement.
