COVID-19 Coronavirus - 17th March 2020

The following update was released by the FA today.

"Following the Government’s announcement on the 16th March, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed for the foreseeable future.

We have also decided to postpone all matches across all FA competitions, including those outside of the professional game, until 3 April.

We are committed to trying to complete all competition fixtures and will be liaising with the relevant parties to establish appropriate options to do so.

Throughout this period, we have taken Government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.

We are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed."

In line with this advice Yarnton Blues Football club will cease training sessions to protect the well being of our players, parents, and volunteers, as well as the wider community they may come in contact with. We will resume training as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

Further information can be found on the FA's website http://www.thefa.com/about-football-association

We will post any significant updates to the situation on this page as they become available.
