"To respect her remarkable life and commitment to the country, and as a sign of regard, this weekend's fixtures will be deferred.

Head Association CEO Richard Experts said: "We and our clubs might want to honor Her Highness' long and steadfast support of our country.

"As our longest-serving ruler, she has been a motivation and abandons an extraordinary inheritance following an existence of commitment.

"This is an enormously miserable time for the country as well as for the large numbers of individuals all over the planet who respected her, and we consolidate with every one of those in grieving her passing."

As a sign of regard to Her Highness Sovereign Elizabeth II, this end of the week's Head Association match round will be deferred.
