Covid19 Update

Wednesday 16th September 2020

Without all the hard-working volunteers’/committee members’ commitment, a return to football would not have been possible. With the extra precautions relating to Covid19 the task has been mammoth. Please recognise this and be patient.

The new legislation, as of Monday 14th September, requires no more than 6 people to be together, either indoors or outdoors. Whilst this does not apply to sports gatherings (players coaches etc), it does apply to spectators at a football match. Therefore, only 6 people may stand or sit together and there must be a clear distance (2m) between them and the next group of 6 or less.

Collective spacing of people leaning on the barriers around the ground, is a breach of the legislation and may result in action taken against the individuals and the club.

These are to ensure that we can continue to play football at our level, and that spectators may still be permitted to attend (under strict guidelines). Failure to adhere to these guidelines could result in this arrangement reverting to Phase 1 of Return to Football (spectators limited to 150) or the arrangement being terminated.

For us ALL to be able to enjoy football again, in a viable manner, it is vitally important that we ALL comply with The FA / Government guidelines. We ALL have to be aware – it will only need a few to deny the rest of us the opportunity to watch at our level – which could result in clubs folding. It is serious, so please, help clubs by following guidelines.

Sydenhams Wessex League Monitors have been instructed to attend matches and are required to submit a Covid compliance report (to the league’s Covid Coordinator) upon which decisions are made and appropriate sanctions may be applied.

The League / The FA, CAN and WILL, where it is evidenced that significant breaches have been or are occurring, suspend the fixtures for a club (or clubs) or reduce the number of spectators permitted, back to phase 1 of the agreement (150 spectators) until the League / The FA are satisfied that the appropriate guidelines are being adhered to.

Track and tracing will still take place – it has been greatly appreciated that the majority of supporters are bringing a slip of paper with their name and contact number clearly printed. Please continue to do so.

Saanitise/wash your hands regularly – don’t touch your face – keep your distance and enjoy the game.
