In line with the statement released today from the Scottish Football Association (SFA) all football games (competitive and friendlies) involving Giffnock Soccer Centre teams at all age groups are postponed until further notice.
We have sought clarification from the SFA on the position as regards training sessions. They have informed us that this remains at each clubs’ discretion and we have been encouraged to follow wider public health advice.
With this in mind we have decided that with immediate effect
All Saturday morning Academy football sessions will be cancelled until further notice.
However, “training sessions for all other age groups will continue as planned on a voluntary basis“.
As with the wider Government advice, players exhibiting any symptoms should not attend and there will be no future sanction on squad positions for any child whose parents or guardians would prefer they didn’t participate at the moment. We will continue to monitor the situation and update as appropriate via email and social media.
If you have any questions please direct via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond individually.
If there are emerging questions or themes we will also respond via social media with Q&As.
As ever, our focus is on the health and welfare of all the GSC families and this will guide us through this period of uncertainty until we are fully back out playing football.
Craig Inglis, Chair, Giffnock Soccer Centre
