COVID-19 Update - 3rd November 2020
Lockdown and temporary suspension of grassroots football
Following the government announcements on Saturday 31st October and the subsequent FA Statement today, all grassroots football activity both indoors and outdoors will cease from Thursday 5th November through to and including Wednesday 3rd December.
As a club this means we will have to suspend all training and match activity during this period. For most teams this will mean missing a maximum of 4 training sessions and 4 matches. The training sessions will be added onto the end of the season and we would expect and hope that matches will be rescheduled for later on in the season and the season extended if necessary. This means our footballers will not be missing out on any football, assuming there are no further lockdowns.
The club will continue to work closely with the FA, our leagues and our facility partners to ensure we are ready to start as soon as we receive the green light.
Our army of volunteer coaches and members have worked so hard to get our children back playing football and are more disappointed than anyone with this news. This additional lockdown comes as a real blow but we understand the bigger picture and hope that from December 4th we can resume and complete our season. We are in unprecedented times and your support and patience as we try to react to these challenges is very much appreciated.
