Hi all, please see email below from County FA. The email has been generated as there has been a lot of confusion between what is a private and what is a public site. Please read the email in full.
The slides attached should be self explanatory - to clarify a public place is somewhere not owned by anyone, has more than one entrance and exit, is a thoroughfare and there is unrestricted access at all times even when you are playing a game. The general public have access to watch games if they wished to do so.
A private site is where there is a gated or single entry - even if you don't have anyone on the gate stopping entry and there is no thoroughfare through the site.
As previously stated, the least number of people possible should be attending games for the time being.
The full FA guidance is also shared again on the link below, please take time to read this and familiarise yourselves with what is and isn't permitted now we have moved into step 2 of the Government roadmap.
On another note, I have had a few queries over the past week or so regarding who can play in the cup/shield competition ie, triallists or anyone not registered - PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT ALLOWED. The competition is a sanctioned, league organised competition and all players competing should be registered with our league and showing on squad lists. Anyone not registered should not be taking part.
Please ensure you have your squad list with you and available to the opposition to check, this is a standard part of matchdays and has not changed!! Also, whilst we do not encourage the exchanging of team sheets at this time, one still should be available for viewing and the opposition should be aware of who is playing in the game that day. Please report when completing your stats if this was not available at a game.
Please also remember to let us know if games are not going ahead - as previously circulated if a game cannot be played for whatever reason other than fitness of ground it will usually be awarded to the opposition. There will not be any postponements except for weather related or very extreme circumstances.
All GROUP STAGE games are NOT played to a finish - it's 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. No extra time or penalties are required at these stages. If you played ET or pens last week please go into the stats and correct the score to what it was at fulltime if you/your registrar has not already done this. When we get to the knockout stages in June, the games will then be played to a finish.
Finally, just a reminder again of dates:
April 10th, 17th, 24th - first group games
