Representative Football 2020-21
Both our Chairman and General Secretary have attended two SEESFA Google meetings recently where many issues surrounding Representative Football this season were discussed at great length.
Although the information from the FA and ESFA is virtually carry on as normal, the feeling within the meeting was that much of this guidance does not take into consideration the special situations we all face within our schools. The issues of transport, playing and changing facilities, Covid health and safety guidance for players, parents and managers, payment of officials, track and trace, individual school influences, and trials were all discussed at length.
Taking account all that was said at our own Executive meeting and the SEESFA meetings, the Executive Committee has taken the decision to postpone all Rep Team Football for this season.
We realise that this may disappoint many, but our priority must be the safety of our staff and players. At this moment in time we just cannot support the running of any team without compromising safety and this is something we will never do. We thank you for your understanding.
