Monday 16th March - Following the latest guidelines issued by the Government, The FA has released a statement regarding the COVID-19 outbreak:
"We have issued a further update regarding the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on football in England.
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 for the foreseeable future.
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.
We are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed."
Our respective Leagues have therefore taken the decision to suspend all Football until further notice. This means there will be no fixtures played.
In terms of training, the club will continue to liase with the training venues and take advice from the West Riding County FA on whether this also will be suspended. We will update you on this as soon as we have more information.
