Coronavirus (COVID-19)

News | March 19, 2020

Dear AP Football Club members,

Following recent Government announcements related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, namely for people to avoid physical contact and gatherings where possible, the FA is now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed for the foreseeable future.

This suspension of football includes all aspect of grassroots football including:

  • Coach Education courses
  • Fixtures
  • Friendlies
  • Training Sessions

We support the decision taken by the FA and our affiliated football leagues, which is prioritising the health and wellbeing of all players and members. We will update everyone when the playing suspension is lifted.

The clubhouse will also remain closed until further notice.

At this time, I’d like to thank all members for their continued support towards the club during what has been a very testing and unprecedented season. With particular thanks to members of the football committee and the club’s management committee for their hard work behind the scenes.

Please try to stay safe, be vigilant and help others where possible.
