Covid -19 Updates – 7th July

The club will be updating this page as and when we get new guidance or when we need to communicate to our members any news realting to Covid-19.

We hope you are all keeping safe and well in these strange times.

The return of grassroots football is something that we know many are keen to see, but at this stage of the nation’s response to Covid-19, it must be done with careful consideration for everyone’s safety – especially vulnerable groups, children and their families. Please note this guidance will be updated regularly in line with Government & FA guidance, as we progress through the next stages of this pandemic.

Over the last few weeks the committee and coaches have been planning and testing our procedures detailed in the Risk Assessment. We are now confident that we can begin the phased return to training.

We have held our first Coaches training session in which we briefed them in full on the Risk Assessment, their reponsibilities as coaches and training session ideas.  More sessions will be required in the coming week to ensure every coach has been briefed as any coaches who have not attended will not be able to take sessions.

Guidance for parents and carers will be sent dierctly to you in the coming days so please read this carefully as the club will require your full support during the return.

You can view all the FA Guidance and the Risk Assessment by clicking the links below.

If you have any concerns or questions at this stage please speak to your team manager or email Nigel Peacock (

Please continue to stay safe and we will keep you updated as and when we can…
