Fixtures Sunday 19th December
Fixtures Sunday 19th December:
We have received a large number of requests from teams who do not wish to play this coming Sunday due to fears of being ill for Christmas if they were to contract Covid and because they have Christmas events booked.
In view of this, we have taken the decision to cancel all Walsall Junior Youth League fixtures for Sunday 19th December 2021. Teams with County Cup fixtures this weekend will still go ahead as these are out of League jurisdiction.
May we take this opportunity on behalf of the League Committee to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Message From The Chairman
Message from the Chairman – Mr. David Vale
I am writing to you all after the government have issued their latest guidelines to combat
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
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 email@example.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

Specifically, the workshop will allow coaches to learn how to manage differences between players, cope with mistakes, and how to adapt approaches for players’ individual needs, whilst working closely with Staffordshire FA tutors.
It will also highlight the importance of regularly reflecting on coaching behaviours and how effective they are at installing a positive environment at training and on matchdays.

Please find below a link to the slides from the presentation at the league meeting last week.
Grace Academy Mini Soccer Centre (and other centres)
All attendees at Grace Academy each Sunday are reminded that a 5mph limit exists. The car park is particularly busy on a Sunday with football, church and school users, mainly children. There is a one way system that is clearly marked and ‘in’ and ‘out, gates. The ‘out’ gates open on approach.
At Grace Academy and all other centres, please can all drivers and walkers be aware of other users of the facilities and take care at all times following instructions and steward directions when given. Given the centres are often very busy it would be useful if teams could car share wherever possible to reduce congestion.
Thank you for your cooperation.
