On Friday 17th July the Government issued its Return to recreational team sport framework. This put the responsibility on each National Governing Body (English FA) in our case to agree a plan with them. On Saturday 18th The FA issued GUIDELINES FOR THE RETURN OF OUTDOOR COMPETITIVE GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL.
The FA Guidelines that have been agreed by the Government to allow Grass Roots football to take place and they form part of the risk mitigation that we have agreed with LBRUT that is required for the use of the Palewell facility.
As another FA County Affiliated club you will also be following the same Guidelines.
On occasion it is going to be challenging to position spectators on the touchlines while following social distancing rules. The first priority is to ensure the safety of the Children involved in your game, on any adjacent pitches and in warm up areas. It may be that not everyone can watch the game and a fair arrangement will have to be reached.
When necessary the respective Respect Marshalls should agree the arrangements.
