We are all so pleased to hear the news from the government about the return of grassroots football from the 29th March. Over the next week the Exec committee will be liaising with our local venues and leagues to work through plans to return safely to training and matches. It will be so lovely to see all our players back on the pitch.
Please read the Club’s current guidance on Covid, and note that this will be updated once updated information is received from the FA/CFA.
In accordance with the latest announcement regarding the government measures about coronavirus, the Club notes that “organised team sports will still be able to proceed” therefore we are continuing to train and prepare for the coming season. We will, of course, review this in light of any subsequent changes.
In accordance with the FA update on the 17th July, the Club has reviewed the guidance, and match play can now be included in training. Please see updated Club Guidance for coaches and parents. We encourage all our members to speak to their coaches or a member of the Executive Committee if they have any concerns.
July 5th should have been our presentation day; the day each year where we celebrate the participation and successes of each player and team, and we say thank you to all our volunteers and parents & guardians for the effort they put into making Upton JFC such a fantastic club.
While we haven’t been able to meet as a club this year we have produced a year end review with a report for each team, click here to see a copy: Upton_JFC_End_of_Season_Reports.pdf
Huge thanks to Luke Scott from the U8’s for his time and creative input and to all the coaches and volunteers for the write ups.
The club is making plans to return to training whilst ensuring that all our members stay safe and adhere to FA and government guidelines. Please see attached for the club communication on our “return to play” plans.
In line with government guidance and advice from the FA, all football activities at Upton JFC have been suspended, we will continue to monitor updates and advice from the relevant authorities. We wish all our members, families and friends good health and we hope to be back playing as soon as it is considered safe to do so.
