This seasons cup finals have been hard to organise and we have had to make a few changes to allow supporters in to the games.  

All supporters who attend you will be required to fill in a covid attendance form. We will have a form at the gate for everyone to sign.

To try and prevent a build up at the gate we are asking everyone to arrive a bit earlier than the KO time.

We have also attached a form that can be downloaded and filled in prior to your arrival so you can hand it to the committee.


Would clubs please note that before submitting their SYFA application form they must first join the league or their application will not be accepted.
