Stage 1 and 2 COVID-19 Guidance

Teams

The first team Mens and Womens squads returned to football from 29 March.

It has been confirmed that the Mens will compete in the Buildbase FA Vase and SCFL Premier Division Supplementary Shield from April to May.

Our Womens team will compete in a mini-league.

You can view the fixtures here.

Spectators

Spectators are not permitted to attend any training sessions or matches as part of stage 1 or 2 at stadiums for arranged fixtures. Any sessions taking place on parks or public land can welcome spectators as long as they follow distancing and rule of 6 guidance.

Unfortunately, this means that we cannot welcome spectators to Culver Road, or home & away fixtures, however a livestream will be available for our FA Vase fixture on 17 April.

Players aged Under-18 are permitted 1 parent/carer with them.

Travel
The Government guidance on travel is that the ‘stay at home’ rule will end on Monday 29 March, but many restrictions will remain in place. As organised sport can resume, all participants may travel to games but should avoid travel at the busiest times and routes, as well as minimising any unnecessary journeys where possible. All participants must follow the Government’s guidance on safer travel.

Changing rooms
Changing rooms cannot be used as part of step one in the roadmap out of lockdown and must remain shut. Toilets will be allowed to open, 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after training and/or matches. All government guidance on hygiene and social distancing measures must be followed.

Spectators
No spectators are allowed at grassroots football as part of step one of the Government’s roadmap. One parent or guardian per child is permitted, where clubs and facilities can safely accommodate this and following all appropriate guidance.
