COVID-19 Current Guidance

28th September 2020

It's been an exciting time planning our return to football. Many of the leagues now have start dates so the majority of our teams are back training and keen to get started! As a club, we've done our best to ensure everyone can come back safely and we've been producing a lot of documents and guidance to support and give you all peace of mind.

Our COVID-19 team is run by Kristen Bailey and all correspondence should pass through her in the first instance. Her contact details can be found here.

The FA have issued full COVID-19 guidance and documents which can be found HERE. Underneath the information on the page, there are also five PDFs that we bring to your attention.

We ask that all players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents/carers, spectators read these in detail in addition to the latest Government guidance on COVID-19.

Thanks to the Football Foundation, and the work of Paul Barrass, our grants officer, we also have received funds to help invest in making our training and match venues safer for all. Please click on the Press Release to expand.



These documents have been prepared by the Club in alignment with FA guidance.

Risk Assessments

There are multiple Club prepared risk assessments here that outline all the precautions we expect all our players and managers to take when involved in training and matches in order to keep everyone safe and prevent the potential transmission of COVID-19. There is a general assessment and specific ones to all the venues we currently use. Please read through the assessments thoroughly and feel free to share this guidance with others. Risk assessments are living documents so these will be updated accordingly in line with any new guidance from the government/ the FA.

The following risk assessments relate to specific training venues and indoor football. Please read this advice carefully and ensure you abide by the rules set out by any venues we use.
