Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Surprisingly and disappointingly, I have to inform you that a directive has just been received from the JFA that their Competitions Committee has taken the decision to postpone with immediate effect all competitive fixtures through to the end of 2020.
The decision was taken by the Competitions Committee and endorsed by the JFA on Thursday evening due to the rise in the number of Covid cases and Clubs expressing concerns for the welfare of their players. The Committee were also apparently finding it difficult to manage fixtures in these circumstances. Training can continue providing the published FA and Government guidelines continue to be followed.
I apologise to anyone who has been inconvenienced due to the abruptness of this decision and I thank each and everyone of you for all your hard work and your commitment to your young players. I am sure they will be as disappointed as we are with the decision but we would appreciate your understanding. If you can please communicate this information to the parents of all of your squads explaining that this was not a decision of St Peter FC but is a directive from the JFA.
