Update from the EBAC Northern League

Submitted by Rob Jones on Friday, 27 November 2020

Hi All

As you will all be aware the current lockdown ends at midnight on the 2nd December 2020 and will be replaced by a three tier system based on total number of Covid cases in an area; the number of cases in over 60s; rate at which cases are rising or falling; the proportion of test results coming back positive and pressure on the NHS.

Impact of the tier system

LEAGUE STATEMENT

There is a meeting tonight between the FA and Steps 5/6 leagues and we will be discussing the implications for the league of the Government’s announcement today on which areas are in which tiers.

A meeting of the League Management Committee will then be held as soon as possible about the way forward and we will let clubs and spectators know how we will proceed as soon as possible.

We share everyone’s frustration with the situation but ask everyone to keep abiding by the new rules so that everyone keeps safe and well.

We welcome back Aaron Croft to Sunderland LGV Park after a brief spell at Billingham Synthonia. We look forward to seeing him in the role of Coach/ Player once the lock down restrictions are lifted.

Unfortunately we have lost the services of Anthony Callaghan to fellow Northern League Div I Club Thornaby FC. We wish him well at his new club.
