NORFOLK FA STATEMENT – 25 SEPTEMBER 2020
As we head into another weekend of grassroots football (weather dependent!!) across the County, we are very mindful of the continued impact the on-going Covid-19 pandemic and the effect it is having on all of us.
We are sure that all involved in our clubs & leagues, along with our referees, are all desperate to ensure that grassroots football continues and we genuinely believe that it can with the continued help, compliance and vigilance from every one that has a part to play in Norfolk Football.
Please ensure we continue to follow the guidance set out by The FA and Government, so that we give the game we love every chance of taking place in the safest environment possible and can be continued to be enjoyed in the many weeks & months ahead.
This week, The FA provided some updated FAQ’s (downloadable PDF at the bottom of the page), which includes further information regarding the new NHS Test & Trace QR Codes Posters, which have been mandated by Government to be in place at all venues across the country. There was also further information from Government this week that will have an impact for some of our affiliated clubs, such as the requirement for face masks to be worn inside areas such a clubhouses and table service to be in place across all licenced premises.
Also, following the update from the Prime Minister on Tuesday, we have made the decision to once again close our County Headquarters offices, so therefore all of our headquarters based staff will be solely working from home once again. Please be patient with us, particularly when calling the office number and if necessary when your call cannot be answered, please leave a voicemail and a staff member will return your call at the earliest possible moment.
As always, thank you again for all of the continued tireless efforts and support you’ve given to ensure that Norfolk Football can continue to take place.
Norfolk County FA
