Following the Government’s announcement that all non essential social contact should stop immediately, the North West Counties League Management Committee has agreed it has no alternative but to suspend all fixtures with immediate effect.
Obviously none of us know what will happen next but the League Management Committee will keep monitoring the situation and report back to clubs when they receive guidance from the FA and other authorities.
A Football Association statement on grassroots football said: "Following the government's announcement today, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed.
"Throughout this period, we have taken government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time."
