Clubs urged to submit Covid-19 Officer details

The L&C require every club in the league to submit information that confirms who is acting as their Covid-19 Officer for the upcoming season.

FA guidelines during the pandemic state that “all clubs must appoint a Covid-19 Officer who will be responsible for developing a Covid-19 plan and risk assessment prior to the restart of any activity.”

Keith Marsden, Registrations Officer for the L&C, said that just a “handful of clubs” have sent details to the league. Therefore, it is of vital importance that all teams submit the name, email address, and telephone number of their nominated Covid-19 official to as soon as possible.

Mr Marsden said: “We are still in the midst of a serious pandemic and it is vital that we do everything possible to create a safe environment for everyone involved before we can consider a return to competitive football.”
