Football activities to restart at Shore Road this week

We’re really excited to get some of our teams back to socially distanced training this week. It’s been a lot of hard work from the committee getting arrangements made with the council, ordering in sanitiser and first aid equipment, understanding the FA guidance, and formulating our own plans.

Our amazing volunteer coaches have been briefed via Zoom, and it will be great to see some of the teams back out training. Please bear in mind training is completely optional, if you or the coach aren’t comfortable returning to football just yet, there is absolutely no requirement to do so.

Due to the facility at Applemore remaining closed, training will take place at Shore Road playing fields and we have a rota of pitch spaces set out there, with large transitional periods to ensure social distancing and minimise the burden of traffic and parking. As Shore Road is a public space, we must remain mindful of other users. Parking is extremely limited, so please if you live near enough and if at all possible, see if you can get there without driving.

We are also asking a parent or guardian of each child to remain on site, so if there is any requirement for treatment, they can attend and the coach can maintain the required 2m distance.

Here are the details of how it will work…
