Following the announcement from the FA and confirmation from Cheshire FA, football training is now permitted to resume with strict social distancing restrictions in place.
‘Football training or fitness activities in groups of no more than six, keeping two meters apart at all times.’
The full updated guidance on permitted grassroots football activity can be found here on the FA website.
Whist it is great that we can now take a small step towards the return of grassroots football, there is no pressure on any of our team managers and coaches to restart training if they do not wish to. There is also no pressure on players to attend if their team is restarting training in the next few weeks.
Teams who are restarting will share details via team WhatsApp groups etc. There are no plans at this time to restart the Saturday Soccer School.
