Club guidance on Covid-19

Given the current pandemic it is really important that everyone involved with the club is fully aware of the official guidance from the FA and also our club guidance. 

On this page we have detailed everything you need to know and we urge you all to take the time to familiarise yourself with all of the guidelines. As a club we feel we have taken all of the required actions according to the guidelines but we would urge you to point out anything you feel we could or should improve upon when you attend training and match days. 

There are a lot of things to consume, this page contains everything that is available and also summaries to make things as simple as possible. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the committee or our appointed Covid-19 officers Max Eaglestone or Kevin Elsley who will be present at training.


We have created a simple Covid-19 guidlines sheet. It is critical that you are aware of the guidelines as the club will be enforcing the rules at all matches and training until further notice.
