On evaluating TheFA and StaffsFA guidelines, we are delighted to confirm that ALL Shelfield United FC teams can return to football from tomorrow, 5th December 2020. For your information StaffsFA guidelines can be seen at https://www.staffordshirefa.com/news/2020/dec/02/update-on-football-in-staffordshire—021220
On arrival at the grounds, all parents are required to scan the NHS Test & Trace and everyone should sanitise their hands. Further you must remain in socially distanced groups of no more than six. Do note that we remain in Covid Tier3 and laws pertaining to everyone’s conduct must be adhered to. For the latest Tier3 information visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/tier-3-very-high-alert
Whilst Birmingham FA leagues (U16s) will play games in December, StaffsFA have decided to regrettably postpone games until January, however friendlies are permitted.
Managers will now advise teams on training sessions and are able to arrange friendlies, albeit with a preference to play (a) inter-club friendlies; (b) teams within the local area; and (c) staggered game times to reduce traffic at the grounds.
Do note that player subs will continue for the month of December. As always if subs cannot be made please engage with The Club, where we will do our very best to support individual cases.
