The Hackney & Leyton Football League is currently suspended until further notice due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
As I’m sure you’ll appreciate things are now moving very quickly. Following the government press briefing earlier this evening (Mon 16th March), the Football Association have now taken the following position:
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.
In terms of plans for other areas of our business (courses and training, committee meetings, etc), tomorrow I will be meeting with the Senior Management Team and the Chairman, then I have a series of webinars scheduled with the FA to discuss this subject directly.
I will be back in touch with you all with an updated plan of action shortly
I recognise these are unsettling times but we’re well placed to manage this and the absolute priority at this stage is the health and wellbeing of all.
Many thanks again for your ongoing support and understanding.
The Hackney & Leyton Football League will be keeping all clubs updated on any latest developments.
