After the recent government briefing (16/03/2020) asking everyone to limit unnecessary social contact, Somerset FA have decided to suspend all football (including training) with immediate effect which is fully supported by Wembdon FC.
At present this suspension is indefinite and we will advise you if and when there is a change to this situation. This decision has not been made lightly, everyone is aware of the importance of sport and football in general to everyone, however it does not compare to the wider picture and everyone’s welfare, therefore this is we believe the correct course of action.
The FA have made the following statement:
Following the Government’s announcement today, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed for the foreseeable future.
Throughout this period, we have taken Government advice with the priority being the health and well-being of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.
We are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed.
