League action to resume on 5 December

Following the government’s announcement this week, we can confirm that the Lancashire and Cheshire Amateur Football League will resume on Saturday 5 December.

The national lockdown will end on 2 December at midnight, at which time we will revert back to Tier 3 restrictions. Much like prior to lockdown, this will mean cross-tier travel restrictions.

Clearer information will be available in the coming days but as a league, we are ready to resume action and our previous Covid-secure procedures will be expected of all clubs, including risk assessments and control measures. It’s vital that everybody takes the necessary precautions to prevent the virus from spreading again.

All clubs should have received an email with our procedures for use as soon as the season restarts, such as confirmation, team sheet, postponement, Covid case reporting, and the referee’s amended match sheet report.

Many match sheet copies still not having been sent to matchsheets@landc.org.uk. Please send them this weekend so we are all straight for the restart. It has been a pleasure to write to you all, let’s get back to enjoying some football!
