Dear Parents and players,

As you will see from the attached article, the FA has provided an update for ‘non-elite’ football in England following the UK Government’s announcement on new national Covid-19 restrictions that will be in place from Thursday 5 November 2020 until Wednesday 2 December 2020.

As a result of the UK Government’s new national Covid-19 restrictions, and subject to Members of Parliament voting tomorrow [Wednesday 4 November 2020] and the publication of bespoke guidance from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport [DCMS], the impact on ‘non elite’ football in England will include the suspension of the following during this period: All fixtures and training for indoor and outdoor youth and adult grassroots football.

I am sure you will join us in thanking all of those in the Club who have made it possible to re-start football for your children over the summer, which has taken substantial determination and commitment.

As soon as we hear any further information, we will relay this to you as soon as possible. In the meantime, please stay safe, keep yourselves sane and the children as active as possible. We will try and upload links to individual training ideas and other useful information, but please do remember that all of the coaches, managers and committee members are volunteers and will also have their jobs and families to consider.

Best wishes, the RJFC Committee and Trustees
