All league games postponed
Statement from the Surrey Youth League General Secretary
Following an announcement from the Football Association, the Executive committee of the Surrey Youth League have taken the difficult decision to postpone all league games and league events, cup finals etc. until after the Easter School Holidays at the earliest.
This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the Covid-19 virus. The decision is being made purely on the number of cases requiring self-isolation and the impact on facilities. Given the obvious concern from clubs and parents, there is no alternative but for today’s action. However, we are committed at this time to trying to complete this season’s fixture programme and are now looking at ways to establish appropriate options to do so.
We will continue to monitor all Government advice with the situation under constant review, with the priority being the health and well-being of all. Further updates will follow in due course.
