Covid-19 Update – March 2021

Please see the latest FA update

We welcome the UK Government’s update today regarding the Covid-19 roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions which means we can look forward to the safe return of grassroots football from 29 March for both adults and children.

With this new clarity around timings, we will continue to work with Government on plans for a safe return for grassroots football across England and will communicate updated guidance as soon as we can.

We can also confirm that the 2020/21 grassroots season has been extended until the end of June in order to provide additional flexibility and time for leagues to complete their fixtures this season if they wish to do so.

Please note, the extension does not apply to the National League System (NLS) Steps 3-6, Regional NLS Feeder Leagues and the Women’s Football Pyramid from Tier 3 and below, including County Leagues at Tier 7, as the process to determine the preferred route forward for these competitions is currently ongoing. We will provide a further update on this in due course.

Please keep an eye out for any further communication on our social media feed.

Subscription update

Dear Parent/Guardian

We hope that this letter finds you and your family keeping safe and well during these continued testing times.

As there are no further updates from the Government as to when Grassroots football will start again, we are at present, in a state of limbo!  In light of this the Club is offering the ability for you to suspend your subscriptions until such time as Grassroots football restarts.  If you wish to suspend your payments then please contact our Club Treasurer Jackie Woodcock 0161 330 3602 before doing so. 

For those of you who have fallen behind on your payments please use this time as an opportunity to catch up.  Of course, if you are happy to continue to pay subscriptions then no action is needed and we thank you very much.

This is a very challenging time for everyone involved in a volunteer run football club of our size, and we do appreciate all the support we have received to date.

If you do have any queries or concerns please do contact the Club Secretary Sarah Taylor at dukinfieldtigers@gmail.com .

Yours in Sport

Dukinfield Tigers Committee
