All fixtures have been postponed by the local leagues until April 4th at least. The respective leagues have taken the stance under the influence and guidance from Lancashire FA.

Weekly training may still go ahead, we will remain open as normal for team training until the government & public health change the stance on educations settings closing their doors etc.
We ask for anyone showing symptoms of the Virus to keep away from training and seek medical guidance on self isolating. Also, if you feel you do not want your child to attend training then please liaise with your teams manager and make then aware.

We will be following the 'Guidance of Educational Settings'

Anyone showing any symptoms MUST remain not present for the sessions and seek NHS advice.
• Fever
• Coughing
• Difficulty Breathing

COVID-19 is a higher risk the elderly so we politely ask any elderly spectators to prevent the risk catching COVID-19 not to attend any sessions over the coming weeks.


There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

• Washing your hands often - with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if hand-washing facilities are not available.

• Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it

• People who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or childcare setting.
