Good Evening, This email has been sent to all current Regional, League and Club Secretaries; please ensure you share it with all other relevant officials. Please find attached and below the latest Coronavirus Joint Response Group Update.
While the decision to suspend or continue training continues to be at each club’s discretion, we would encourage members to please pay close attention to Question 6 within the FAQs, which provides the following guidance:
‘Each club, regardless of whether professional or recreational, has the responsibility to make decisions that keep its players, coaches, support staff and other employees safe. PFA Scotland has issued its own guidance to players and we are committed to supporting our members with individual advice. Having taken medical advice, the Scottish FA Board recommends that no training or conditioning in groups should take place for the time being. This recommendation covers all levels of the game. Further updates on this will be given as and when further medical advice is received.’
The SYFA is in ongoing, regular contact with the Scottish FA, who are in turn liaising with the relevant experts and authorities. We will ensure to update our members accordingly.
Kind regards, Florence
Secretary Scottish Youth FA Hamden Park G42 9BF
