FA Closes the Season Early

The FA has taken the decision to end the grassroots football season ahead of schedule.

We have received notice from the Secretary of the East Lancashire Football Alliance (ELFA) that due to the increase in clubs no longer being able to play, often as a direct result of Covid-19, or players having to isolate because of the rising prevalence of Covid-19 in schools they have taken the decision that the last fixture list of the season will be Sunday, 20th June 2021.

This means that the fixture list for Sunday, 27th June 2021 will now no longer go ahead.

Briercliffe Community FC has always encouraged safe play and understands the need to take action where necessary to keep players, parents and staff safe at this time.

Team Managers will be updating parents over the course of the next week with a view of plans moving forward, and out-of-season activities if applicable.  However, on behalf of all of the volunteers, coaches and people involved with Briercliffe Community FC we would like to thank our players and parents for a great effort this season, and hopefully, we can bounce back next season in a less complicated, more Covid free world.
