Further to our statement on Saturday 14 March, Pilkington FC has continued to closely monitor progress and advice from the Football Association and Public Health England in respect of its approach to the coronavirus, COVID-19, pandemic.
Earlier today, the Government advised the UK to limit any ‘Non-Essential Social Contact’, which was closely followed by an FA statement postponing all grassroots football ‘until further notice’.
As a result, the Club is to respect that guidance and, accordingly, we decided this evening that all of our teams will cease all football activity with immediate effect and until further notice (including matches, friendlies, training and practice matches).
As further announcements are made by The FA and/or the leagues that we play in, we will be in touch accordingly.
We all look forward to resuming playing football as soon as we are able to, however in the meantime the health and well-being of everybody associated with our club is of paramount importance.
Do please heed the advice of the Government and Public Health England and take every precaution to look after yourselves.
The Management Committee
