Football is coming home! Over the course of the weekend we received official confirmation from the FA of the proposed fixture start dates.
The management team have held ‘unofficial’ sessions over a series of Saturday mornings to slowly build up fitness levels and be reintroduced to football after a lengthy lay-off. The FA have also released guidelines that allow competitive training with groups of up to 30 people including coaches.
Pre-season matches can commence in August. A number of friendly fixtures were pencilled in but now we are in a position to confirm them over the course of the next few days; therefore announcements will be available soon. At this stage it is unlikely that friendlies will be able to be viewed by supporters but we will do our best to offer the best coverage possible.
NLS (or relevant FA Competition) fixtures are proposed to commence on:
• Step 1 & 2: No earlier than Saturday, 5th September 2020
• Steps 3 & 4: Saturday, 19th September 2020
• Steps 5 & 6: From Saturday 5th September 2020
Football is on it’s way back!
