The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on the Global Football Community. Whilst many of the top professional teams have been able to resume their leagues, without fans, The Thurlow Nunn League was declared 'Null and Void'.
We found ourselves in a situation where we had to finish the season early and have been without matchday income since March.
We want to see football restart as much as anyone else, but the safety of our staff, volunteers, players and supporters is of paramount importance.
Behind the scenes at Woodbridge Town we have been working hard to prepare for the new season both on and off the pitch. This has included producing detailed risk assessments and processes to ensure football can begin but in a safe manor, following guidelines from The FA, Thurlow Nunn League and Government.
Our teams have started training and have begun to arrange friendlies following the news that competitive football should return in September. Indications are that the leagues will not start until spectators are allowed which is great news, we need supporters to join us on our journey- they are part of the club.
Whilst our senior team friendly matches in August will have to be played behind closed doors (as it stands), we can’t wait to welcome everyone back cheering on the teams. Meanwhile youth grassroots football are allowed limited numbers of spectators and The Youth Section will be starting full training and friendly matches over the coming weeks.
We look forward to seeing you at Notcutts Park soon.
