Non-Elite Football Statement

Tuesday 3 November 2020 22:30 by Jon Trenwith

As most of you will be aware, the FA have announced that all grassroots football is to be suspended for the next 4 weeks during the UK Government's new national COVID-19 restrictions.

Here is a quote from the FA's Non-Elite Football Statement:

As a result of the UK Government’s new national COVID-19 restrictions, and subject to MP's voting tomorrow (4th November 2020) and the publication of bespoke guidance from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, the impact on ‘non elite’ football in England will include the suspension of the following during this period: [...]
- All fixtures and training for indoor and outdoor youth and adult grassroots football.
Liverpool County FA

Therefore, we have great disappointment in having to announce that due to the above restrictions, our league programme is hereby postponed for the next 4 weeks.

It is hoped that we can get playing again on Sunday 6th December 2020, however, we will confirm this nearer the time and will be closely monitoring reports from the Government and the FA in case there are any further announcements to share.

In the meantime, the Skelmersdale JFL Committee would like to wish you all the very best, and hope that you all stay safe and well during these uncertain times.
