To all our coaches/volunteers, players, parents/careers, families and friends,
I am writing to you all to give you some important information and guidance during this period of suspension of all grassroots football.
As you all know, based on the information we have been given from the government and the FA, we have decided to suspend all training sessions and matches at Dukinfield Tigers JFC with immediate effect.
Currently there is no date as to when we will return, and like most of you, I will be checking every day for any updates from the government or the FA. As soon as we have more information we will share it with you.
‘Following the Government’s announcement on Monday 16th March, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed for the foreseeable future.
Throughout this period, we have taken Government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.
We are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed.
Manchester FA would like to remind all stakeholders within grassroots football in Manchester of the importance of abiding by the latest advice, which comes in with immediate effect.
Please note that this applies to both training sessions and matches.
The above will remain in place until any future updates are provided by either the FA centrally or on behalf of The FA from ourselves.’
This is undoubtedly disappointing for anyone associated to the club, however it is unavoidable under the current circumstances. The health and well being of every single person associated with the club is paramount.
Your support and patience for the Club during this difficult time ahead is greatly appreciated. Please continue to check our website and social media sites for any further updates.
I am sure we will all be back playing the game we love soon enough.
Yours in sport
