All of us at The Colchester & District Sunday League hope that you had a good Christmas, or certainly as good as it could have been given the circumstances we find ourselves in.
As I am sure you can appreciate, the announcement of Colchester being moved to Tier 4 just before Christmas has changed many things, with one of those being the planned re-start of our League fixtures.
Please be informed that at this time, our planned re-start is Sunday 10th January, however this will only be possible subject to changes in the Tier for Colchester reducing from Tier 4.
For your reference, please see below the latest update / guidance from Essex County FA following the change to Tier 4:
We have noted the Government’s announcement today (Wednesday 23rd December) that the Colchester, Tendring and Uttlesford council areas will come under Tier 4 Covid-19 restrictions from 12:01am on Boxing Day.
Football for adult participants across ‘non-elite’ football in Tier 4 areas is not permitted, including all training and fixtures. The Government’s Tier 4 guidance states organised outdoor sport for under 18s and disabled people will be allowed, while there are exemptions for FA Girls’ Regional Talent Clubs. The Government’s guidelines on travel between tiers should be adhered to. These players cannot move in or out of Tier 4 to train or play.
As and when we have further information to share, we of course will do so.
Please continue to be sensible and stay safe.
