NDSFL - Suspends Fixtures due to Coraid 19 Virus.

We have been monitoring the situation regarding the Coronavirus outbreak and monitoring the advice given by the FA and BCFA.

 

We have been contacted by a number of clubs and players who have raised concerns about participating in games over the next few weeks and have taken those concerns into account along with the updated advice for BCFA issued today.

 

We have therefore decided to suspend all NDSFL fixtures for the next 3 weeks including Sunday 15th, 22nd and 29th March including any mid-week fixtures under our jurisdiction. We hope to resume fixtures on Sunday April 5th, however we will continue to monitor the current situation in the meantime and update you all if that changes.   

 

We are aware that professional sporting bodies across the UK and beyond have cancelled events in order to try and limit the spread of this virus and hope that the measures being taken by these bodies and National Governments bring this to an end very quickly.

 

We are also aware of the impact this will have on clubs especially given the number of fixtures lost to the weather but we have every intention of completing the season as quickly as we can.

 

Paul will issue fixtures for April and possibly to the end of the season as soon as he can. We have already cancelled the internal Cup and Charity Cups to try and alleviate the back log caused by the bad weather. This additional suspension of games may lead us to look at whether the Telegraph Cup and Pete Smith Cup continue however that decision will be made later and we have every intention of running both of these competitions to a completion.

 

I hope that you understand the reasons why this decision has been taken, it has not been taken lightly but given events we felt it the right course of action in the circumstances. 

 

Finally please keep in touch with the updated Government advice should anyone feel they have the symptoms of this virus,

 

Andy Baggott

NDSFL Chairman
