Widnes in High Level Tier 3 tell fans not to travel to Trafford on Saturday. They don’t have many fans but think some may be ignoring advice. The travel in/out of Tier 3 is only advice.

I know of a number of Linnets fans in Tier 2 are definitely coming to the home game against Tadcaster tomorrow in our Tier 3 and fans will definitely be going to Kendal on Saturday.

It’s basically unenforceable anyway like most things this Government bring in.
Widnes told fans to return/cancel their tickets on Trafford website.

Saturday's game at Street has changed. Now playing Buckland Athletic, not Westbury United.

The NWCL has announced a load of fixture changes today, many of which are covid related but I think overlap only partly with what's already been posted on here: https://www.nwcfl.com/changes.php

On a side note, amongst that lot is the postponement of Steeton's game with Darwen, which would've been the first match at their new home at Marley Stadium. They're now hoping the ground will be ready to host its first game on Oct 31.

Looks like there could be the same situation in South Yorkshire where they expect going into tier 3 in the next week or so as infection rates go higher in Barnsley and Rotherham

It probably won't be travelling out of tier 3 anyway by Saturday, as Trafford will likely also be in tier 3 by then, and passing through Lancashire is also tier 3 (though the guidance also allows for driving through places of different tiers anyway).

A majority of the Peterborough Sports squad have received NHS notification to self isolate so the Saturday fixture against St Ives Town and next Tuesday against Nuneaton have been postponed.

So players in Step 3-6 are clearly immune and Step 7 and below aren’t. Can someone explain the rationale please.
If that's your understanding then you're probably not aware that the NLS is operating under covid protocols more advanced than those in place for grassroots.

More totally ill - thought gobbledygook from Westminster saying people can't travel from tier 3 to tier 3? When the whole of northern England is classified as 'very high risk' the penny might finally drop that this is a totally unworkable and an unenforceable way of going about things.

Presumably the same rationale which says that, for example, a Chorley based team cannot travel 5 miles to play in Horwich but can travel 35 miles to Carnforth.

At least I think that is what the "absolute clarity" sentence in the statement is trying to say. In fact, it does not provide clarity at all as it refers to a Tier 3 area whereas the previous sentence, which it purports to clarify, refers to a Tier 3 region. Tier 3 areas are defined in the legislation and, at present, all the areas are in the North West Region so, based on the first sentence, clubs can travel between the Tier 3 areas yet the next sentence says they cannot.

Yes

Its a balancing act between prevention of covid spreading and destroying the economy.

Clubs at step 6 and above are for this respect being treated as a business and given more latitude than at step 7 and below which is regarded as recreational football.


Same as with rest of economy, Authorities are trying to balance not destroying economy with restricting spread of Covid.

NCEL latest communication following the announcement that South Yorkshire will be in Tier 3 by the time Saturday's matches kick off:-

With South Yorkshire set to move into tighter Tier 3 COVID-19 restrictions at the weekend, here is the latest guidance with regards to how it will affect Toolstation NCEL matches in that area.

In line with the latest guidance that was issued by the Football Association last week this is the current situation:

* All games can go ahead as planned;
* Players are safe to travel into and out of Tier 3 areas as it is considered that they are going to a "place of work";
* Home fans are allowed at Tier 3 area games but must socially distance and adhere to the "Rule of 6";
* Away fans are allowed but are being advised to follow Government guidance and not travel into and out of Tier 3 areas;
* No confirmation on clubhouses but it is assumed they must remain closed in line with the Government's guidance on pubs and restaurants.

We will hope to have more detailed information following a conference call with the FA that is due to take place on Thursday evening.
Should there be any changes to the advice, we will announce them via our website and our usual social media channels.
We thank all fans and clubs for their patience and assistance during what is a constantly changing situation within the Toolstation NCEL area.
