Virus update - 17 Mar 2020

To all member clubs and referees.

As we communicated last week, it is the intention of the HYFL and HSC to follow the guidance issued by the two key bodies - The Government and Public Health England (PHE); as well as any announcements by The FA/Middlesex FA, and not to form our own views or to take a position which is contrary to their guidance.

Yesterday evening we liaised with PHE and The FA/MFA and, following the Government’s recent announcement for people to avoid (where they can) direct social contact and gatherings (including now grassroots football), where possible, the Harrow Youth Football League and Harrow Soccer Combination have taken the decision to postpone its ‘full’ fixture programmes for the foreseeable future.

Over the coming days and weeks, we will continue to liaise with the central and governing bodies and advise of any updates in due course.

The priority is the health and wellbeing of all - and we wish all club officials, managers, coaches, players and their parents, the very best in these difficult times.

If all club administrators can please ensure that all matters are up-to-date for all matches scheduled up to and including Sunday 15th March.

If you have any questions please do contact me.
Regards
Andy Lowe
Chairman – HYFL/HSC
