Important Academy Update | COVID-19 Virus

12th Mar 2020

Sent on behalf of Academy Manager, Kristjaan Speakman:

Following several meetings held by the Board and Senior Staff, the Club has decided to suspend all U9-U23 activities until Tuesday 17th March. This will commence after all evening training on Thursday 12th March. It is our intention to provide an update on Monday 16th March following an internal review on how to best protect our players, staff and the wider community.

Over the next four days the Training Ground will only be accessible for essential members of staff and players to reduce the risk factors associated to the COVID-19 virus.

Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the latest NHS advice.

Should an Academy player or any members of a player’s immediate family encounter minor symptoms please ensure Academy Operations Manager Tim Smith is notified so we can accurately oversee the effect this situation has on our players enabling us to act appropriately. Tim can be contacted via email on or mobile on 07584685360.
