Firstly we would like to start this post, thanking all our club members and volunteers who are front line workers, having to work solidly through these very testing and stressful times.
Following our meeting tonight, and with both Norfolk and Suffolk now in tier 4 we feel for the safety of all involved, we have made the decision to suspend all fixtures from immediate effect, this will be reviewed again on the 18th January 2021 at our next committee meeting.
Unlike adult football where both games and training has been suspended by the government. Youth at present, are still able to train, whilst following COVID guidelines, but please be mindful there is no cross county mixing, so players from Norfolk are not permitted to travel to Suffolk to train, and vice versa.
This decision has not come easily, we appreciate there are a lot of young people who are struggling at present, we are hoping with the schools starting later in January and the commencement of the vaccines, football will be able to commence again in the not so distant future.
In relation to the games, we will be postponing all cup games, and looking to play these at the end of the season, if the weeks permit. We will also look at the divisions that initially were down to play each other three times, reducing these to playing each other twice, to ensure where possible we can conclude the season.
Most importantly please keep safe, keep supporting each other, and let’s pull together to ensure all our players, supporters, volunteers and club members have all our ongoing support during these difficult times.
Wishing you all a safe 2021.
