Statement regarding suspension of all training and matches until further notice

The FA have just released the following statement:

“Following the Government’s announcement today, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed for the foreseeable future.
“Throughout this period, we have taken Government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.
“We are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed.”

Unfortunately this means that Brackley Athletic will have to suspend all training and matches until further notice. We realise that this will be very disappointing for the players as it will be for the coaches and indeed everyone on the committee. The whole country is about to face very difficult time and it’s important that the health and well being of everyone in our community is made the top priority. We will be in close contact with all the coaches and as soon as there is any new information will disseminate it as quickly as possible. 

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with myself or any of the fantastic managers and coaches we have throughout the club.

Kind regards

Nick Sillett 
BAFC Chairman
