Following the Government’s announcement on monday, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, and following The FA’s recommendation for all grassroots football to be postponed, we are now advising that all grassroots football in Cheshire is postponed for the foreseeable future.
The postponement of football involves all football activity including fixtures, friendly fixtures, training sessions and all coach education courses.
Throughout this period, The FA has taken Government advice with the priority being the health and well-being of all.
The FA are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review.
Cheshire FA will continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice provided by The Football Association and the Government.
Further updates will follow as needed.
