WJYL Grassroots Football Restart

Posted: March 3, 2021 | Announcements, Notices | , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Following a meeting tonight with both Staffs FA & then the WJYL Committee, it is our intention to restart the league from 11th April 2021.  We have also been given an extension to the end of the season, instead of having to finish by the end of May, we can continue till the end of June 2021.  Obviously, this extension will be dependent on pitches and centres being available till June.
If any of your teams do not wish to resume, please let me know along with the Fixtures & Age Group Secretary asap.
There will be Microsoft Teams meetings for all teams and referees on 24th & 25th March 2021.  These meetings will be staggered into 4 groups, mini soccer, 9v9, 11v11 & Referees.  Links will be sent out for these meetings.  These meetings are important and will outline what will be expected on match days & will outline any further updated guidance received from the FA.
The player registration/transfer deadline has been extended to 7th May 2021.
Applications for next season will soon be available online.  Due to the issues of the past 12 months, we have decided to keep the cost down to £25 per team for entry to the league this is a large reduction on the usual price.
Hope this is of assistance, further information will be sent out as necessary.
Regards
Alberta Wood

Message From The Chairman

Posted: October 1, 2020 | Announcements, Notices | , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Message from the Chairman – Mr. David Vale
I am writing to you all after the government have issued their latest guidelines to combat
COVID-19.
Our football will continue for now, however, the following measures MUST be adhered to
by all attending any of our fixtures at any venue to ensure that everyone is kept as safe as
possible:
 Social Distance as per Government guidelines, League Risk Assessment and venue
requirements must be strictly followed at all times
 A Test and Trace system must be in place for every team each week. Following an
FA email sent on 22nd September 2020, this may be facilitated by using the NHS QR
code system along with the NHS Test and Trace App. This will not be available
until 24th September 2020.
 Every Club must have a COVID-19 Officer and their name and email must be
registered with the League Secretary.
 A Respect Marshall for each team must be on duty at each fixture to monitor social
distancing and supporter behaviour. They must wear the appropriate League
issued fluorescent bib.
 Only 1 spectator per player is allowed at any venue.
 No portable substitute benches are to be used to ensure players can social distance
when not on the field of play.
 Arrive no earlier than 20-30 minutes before KO, this will allow time to organise the
fixture and to prepare the players.
 Notify Fixtures, Age Group Secretaries, opposition and Referee at the earliest
opportunity if you are unable to play. Please complete a postponement form
(https://www.wjyl.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Match-PostponementForm-2019.pdf) and send to lynnredfern14@gmail.com.
It was very disappointing to hear that we had some notifications of incidents of bad
behaviour in our first two weeks of returning. This will not be tolerated and I ask all of our
Clubs/Teams to put in measures to stamp this out.
Failure to adhere to the Government guidelines, Public Health England, FA and League rules
may mean that fixtures will be suspended in addition to FA sanctions. Guidelines are
constantly being updated and any changes will be emailed to Clubs by the League.
By working together and observing current rules and regulations, we can all continue to
safely enjoy our football. Please help us to keep our football a safe environment for
everyone.

Covid 19 And Grassroots Football

Posted: September 26, 2020 | Announcements, Notices | , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We have been made aware that spot checks are being carried by Local Authorities and Facility Managers.

We do feel that this will intensify moving forward, so it is particularly important that we do all we can to demonstrate best practice and ultimately provide a safe environment for our football..

 Our feeling is that we are currently on a knife edge and we need to do everything that we can to avoid a further suspension of the game. The Government is keen for outdoor sport to continue at the moment but only if we can prove that we can do this safely, mitigating the risk of further infection.

With this in mind could I ask you all to ensure you do all you can to assist. This begins with insisting that we only have one supporter per player in attendance at matches.  I know there is a temptation to turn up as we used to and it was evident on Sunday that some teams have reverted back to allowing more parents to attend than should. This inevitably leads to grouping at the side of the pitch and is really unfair on teams who are following the guidance. We must insist that parents remain socially distanced at all times with our appointed Respect Marshalls ensuring this is adhered too.

We will be checking “Test and Trace” paper registers on Sunday across all centres to ensure the numbers registered match the allowed numbers – please don’t put us in the position where we have to ask supporters to leave the venue to sit in their car.

The new QR codes will be on display if people want to try this system – you just need to download the nhs covid-19 app onto your smartphone.

Finally we will be holding a team managers meeting on Thursday 1st October 2020 at 7.30pm. This will be a chance for us all to come together as a community to discuss the opening weeks and where we go as we move forward. You should get a “Teams” invite coming from Paul or Alberta in the next few days.

Also, please ensure the following:

  • Do not attend if you or anyone at home has a temperature, a new persistent cough or a loss or change in sense of taste or smell.
  • Competitive match play is permitted but social distancing is to be adhered to before and after matches.
  • Supporters, parents and other spectators should follow social distancing rules.
  • Spectator groups must be restricted to local and national gathering limits .
  • Players and officials should sanitise hands before, during and after games.
  • Team managers should wear gloves and Mask when the enter the field of plat to treat players.
  • Only travel with those in your family bubble.
  • Please take all litter with you.
  • Be respectful of other users of the Park or Playing Fields

Thank you for everything that you are doing to get the game back onto its feet during these tough times.

David
