Lancashire FA should overturn their decision to prohibit football

M Bennett started this petition to THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION

National lockdown v2.0 ended on 2 December with grassroots football clubs recommencing training and matches.  

Football is integral in maintaining children's healthy minds and bodies and making them happy.  Many coaches have seen how lockdown affected children's mental health and fitness. 

Lancashire FA released a statement without any warning or consultation, after 6pm on Friday 4th December stating that all grassroots football is cancelled till at least the new year.

This is completely unfair and comes as a massive shock to the grassroots football community. There was no indication that this position was coming from Lancs FA and there was no consultation with football clubs who have worked tirelessly to minimise the risk of covid transmission through robust risk assessments.  It is an even more ridiculous position from Lancashire FA because earlier on on the 4th December they confirmed that indoor football could go ahead.

This position also goes against the National FA who have confirmed that grassroots football can go ahead in any tier.

The grassroots community has lost confidence in the leadership team at Lancashire FA in the way in which this situation was handled, so they should overturn their decision to prohibit the playing of football immediately.
