Grassroots football postponed with immediate effect

The FA has confirmed that grassroots football in England has been postponed due to the risk of spreading the coronavirus.

It comes after the government’s latest update which advises people to avoid social contact and gatherings unless absolutely necessary.

The number of confirmed cases of the virus has increased once again and as such, the health and wellbeing of people is of the utmost priority.

This decision not only includes matches, but training sessions are to cease with immediate effect too.

Until any updates to the contrary, this advice remains the protocol that all clubs must abide by.
