No player not registered with the club via this website will be allowed to participate in any training session to allow us to conact all participants in case of a positive infection.


At training and games players should be encouraged to adopt an appropriate way of celebrating a goal in ways that avoid close contact.


Managers and coaches should ensure that bibs / balls / training equipment are sanitised before & after use and not shared between players.


Managers and coaches should encourage parents to ensure their child brings a clearly marked / personalised drinks bottle to avoid the accidental sharing between children.
