Covid update, but I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe

and Happy Christmas.

With the most recent escalated restrictions in England as a whole

and the Local Area, together with the potential virulence of the

Covid 19 Virus, Bishops Lydeard AFC have to inform you of the


As from Today 24th December 2020, Bishops Lydeard AFC have made

the decision to suspend all Football and Football Fixtures for

all Teams of all age groups and genders.

This decision hasn’t been taken lightly, but we feel out of

respect and safety to the Players, Officials, Volunteers and all

of their families it will help protect people from unnecessary

group meetings which would have the potential to fuel the virus,

should any one person present unknowingly be infected.

Therefore we ask that your Competition, in turn, respects this

decision and declares all arranged Fixtures for Bishops Lydeard

AFC through January 2021 are postponed.

We aim to review the decision in the middle of January 2021 and

will make our decision based on whether the Virus has been

controlled to the extent that we feel it is safe to resume

playing. This will, of course, also be influenced by any further

Government restrictions that may come in to play in the meantime.

Yours Sincerely

Gary Brown Chairman
