Joint statement from Norfolk FA, the Hadley & Ottaway Anglian Combination, Central & South Norfolk League sponsored by Barnes Print, Sonata Security Great Yarmouth & District League, Mid Norfolk Youth League, East Point Sports Norfolk & Suffolk Youth League, Norfolk Christian Football League, Norfolk Combined Youth Football League, One Broker Veterans League, Norfolk Women’s & Girls Football League, Walcott Lighthouse Inn North East Norfolk League, RB Trucks North West Norfolk League and the Norwich & District Sunday League.

Following the FA’s announcement last week regarding the conclusion of the 2019/20 season for all grassroots football, the committees of all Norfolk FA sanctioned Leagues have reviewed the information and options provided to them by The FA with regards to the conclusion of the season in Norfolk.

On Tuesday evening, Norfolk FA hosted a meeting with all Leagues (Youth & Adult) at which they fed back with regards to their League’s preferred position and this was followed by a comprehensive discussion on the potential outcomes and implications for Norfolk football.

At this meeting it was clear that all Leagues wanted to ensure a collective approach to communicating with our Clubs, Officials, Players and Volunteers.

As such each League now has the opportunity to feedback the outcomes of the meeting to their respective Management Committees to allow them to review their preferred choice if they wish to do so.

Once all Leagues have completed this a further statement will be issued with regards to the conclusion of the grassroots season in the County.

We would like to take this opportunity to send our best wishes to all involved in the grassroots game in Norfolk and beyond. Please stay safe and continue to follow the government guidance and instructions put in place to help control the spread of the virus.
