Coronavirus (Covid-19)

We have been in contact with The FA/Middlesex FA and Public Health England about the situation and any impact on Grassroots Football.

At the current point in time, there is no advice, guidance or instructions to say that we should not continue as we are.

However, as a precaution, the League/Combination has decided that, as from today, there is no ‘requirement’ to include the pre and post-match handshakes as part of the Respect programme. This is purely precautionary, and clubs may continue to do so if they wish. We are merely taking away the ‘mandating’ of this until further notice.

Clearly, if Government advice changes in the coming weeks, then we will update clubs as to the League’s/Combination’s position.

Thank you
