FA statement following latest Government announcement

1st November, 2020

The FA have made the following statement after the government's announcement of a further tightening of COVID-19 restrictions from Thursday.

The statement read: "We acknowledge the government announcement [on Saturday] regarding COVID-19 restrictions and are awaiting further information before we can confirm how this may affect non-elite football across England.

"We will communicate any necessary updates in due course."

It is not yet known what the impact of a second national lockdown will be on non-league football, including the Toolstation NCEL.

Our matches due to take place this midweek are set to go ahead as planned but, as soon as we know what the situation is for games beyond that date, we will let you know via our website and social media.

Meanwhile, West Yorkshire will no longer be moving into Tier 3 restrictions on Monday as announced last week.

They will now stay in Tier 2 until the national lockdown comes into force on Thursday, changing spectator restrictions on NCEL matches being played in that region this midweek.

As always, we would advise fans to check with the home side before travelling to a game as restrictions will vary.
