The Football Association yesterday (16th March) issued the following statement –
“We have issued a further update regarding the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on football in England. Following the Government’s today, 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. 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.”
Throughout the past few days, SMP have been consistent in following any guidance or recommendations by The FA or London FA in relation to Coronavirus. Consequently, we will have to postpone all football activity, including league fixtures, until further notice. This will also apply to all other SMP activities, including after-school clubs, school programmes and training courses.
In the meantime, please stay safe and keep updated with the latest NHS guidelines. Hope to see you all again soon!
