COVID19 Information

On 18th July 2020 the FA updated the guidance for all Grassroots Football.

The club committee have processed all the new guidance and we can safely accommodate the changes. The new Risk Assessment is available to read below.

One of the main changes to the guidance is the ability to now begin ‘contact’ training in larger groups (tackling etc). As a result of this we require all parents & carers to sign a consent form to allow their child to take part in training sessions where contact is likely to occur. The form is on this page.

The consent form requires the child’s name, team, name of parent or carer and their relationship to the child. When ticking to box you are confirming 2 things:

  1. You have read, understood and will follow the latest guidance issued by the club and FA. (links below)
  2. You are providing consent for your child to take part in training and matches where close contact is possible.

It is important to remember the club are putting no pressure on any child to return to training/matches unless they or their parents/carers are comfortable with doing so. We fully understand individual situations may be different and we will accommodate any existing members situation when it comes to registration for the new season due to start in September.

If you have any queries or concerns at any stage please do not hesitate to contact your team manager or Debbie Baker (Club Welfare Officer – Deborahabaker@hotmail.co.uk)

Please continue to stay safe.
