FA UPDATE: Wednesday 26th March
The FA has decided that all grassroots football (steps 3 to 7) are concluded for the 2019/20 season with all results expunged.
This will allow the game to move forward and to commence planning for next season.
County Football Associations will be supporting grassroots leagues over the coming days to determine how they should close out their current competitions.
FA statement and SWPL response here
Dear friends, supporters, players, managers and committee.
First of all I hope you are all keeping yourself and your family’s safe and well in these worrying times and we’re all doing our bit to help fight the Corvid 19 virus in this unprecedented health crises.
At the football club, as you would have already picked up, all our leagues have been suspended until further notice from our Government and the FA.
The Magpies RBL Club is closed until further notice and along with this we have no alternative but to suspend our HFC’s Monday night bingo sessions along with the Darts, Skittles and Pool leagues.
Over the past few days I have been contacted about our 250 Club Draw and what we as a club are going to do about it. After a lot of thought on how we could do the draw and keep everyone safe I have decided the following:
Our 250 Club has been frozen as from the 15th March. Anyone who has paid in advance will not lose out. For example if you have forward paid 1 week, 10 weeks or annually then whatever you have left on your term you will still have when the 250 Club Draw recommences i.e. when the Government gives us and the country the go ahead to resume our normal way of life.
This Corvid 19 virus is the biggest health crises the World has ever seen and is impacting on everyone's everyday lives and there are times that we will all feel isolated. So get on the phone to speak to a friend or family member when you feel like this. Spare a thought to someone you know who are elderly or who live on their own give them a phone call, let's make someone's day.
Thank you for your continued support
Steve Lee Chairman Holsworthy AFC
Thank you to all
Now we can officially say that the 2019/2020 season is over and null and void in the most unexpected and terrible circumstances, it is so important that everyone stays safe and healthy.
During our season there has been a lot of hard work putting together a squad to compete in this league and we finished with a very different squad than the one we started the season with. We are moving in the right direction which is the most important thing. Myself and Jackson would like to thank to all the players for their commitment and efforts on and off the pitch, club staff, committee and volunteers for all their hard work this season, Nick for his work with the Reserve team and Scott with the under 18s.
A huge thank you goes to all of our sponsors for their continued support and most importantly the supporters who turn out week in week out especially the ones that travel home and away with us. Finally, we’d like to wish everyone well during this difficult period and look forward to seeing you all soon when it is safe to start the next football season.
Take care and all the best
