Return to Additional Measures During Covid-19 Pandemic

Covid-19 Measures For Managers

Details of the measures in place for Managers to Combat Covid-19 are listed below. These measures are mandator.

In March 2021 the FA issued new guidance for the restart of grass roots football on 29th March 2021, “Master Guidance for re-starting grassroots outdoor football“. There are no changes to the Covid measures that have been in place at Sheen Lions for the 2020-21 season. These measures form part of the risk mitigation that we have agreed with LBRUT that is required for the use of the Palewell facility and a similar agreement is made with Rosslyn Park.

Training and Matches

  2. If you are showing symptoms of the virus or have been in contact with someone displaying symptoms within the last two weeks, then you must stay at home until an NHS practitioner advises you that you no longer need to remain in isolation.
  3. Record register of attendees before every training session and match
