NO ACTIVITIES CONSIDERED UNTIL REVIEW DATE 15 FEBRUARY 2021


Following the update from Prime Minster on Monday 4 January 2021 - the FA have issued their response with regard to "non-elite" football

An update for ‘non-elite’ football in England following latest COVID-19
restrictions

We note the UK Government’s announcement this evening with regards to the new
national COVID-19 restrictions and lockdown. As a result, the impact on ‘non elite’
football in England will include the suspension of fixtures and training across the
following, with immediate effect:

  • Steps three to six of the National League System (NLS)
  • Tiers three to seven of the Women’s Football Pyramid
  • Regional NLS feeder leagues
  • Barclays FA WSL Academy League (unless under elite status)
  • FA Girls Regional Talent Clubs (unless under elite status)
  • All indoor and outdoor youth and adult grassroots football, including under 18s
  • (except organised outdoor football for disabled people which is allowed to
  • continue)
  • Vitality Women’s FA Cup (which is currently classified as ‘non-elite’ at this
  • stage in the competition)

It is extremely important that clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials,
volunteers, parents, carers and facility providers adhere to the UK Government’s
new national COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and we implore everyone to follow
these.

Dialogue will continue with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport,
leagues, competitions and County FAs and we will provide further updates for the
2020/21 Vitality Women’s FA Cup, Buildbase FA Vase and ‘non-elite’ football when
relevant.

We would like to thank the football community once again for its hard work,
resilience and understanding during such an incredibly challenging period for both
the game and wider society.

A further statement from the Club will be issued when available.
