2. The 19s and 21s’ Cup remains postponed with a further review scheduled in January to determine the viability of it still going ahead.
Reminder COVID-19 rules for SYFA games
We are asking all clubs to remind Coaches, players and parents of the rules that have been put in place so we can play matches during this difficult period. It's becoming noticeable that people are becoming complacent with the rules. The main complaint that we are getting is the number of spectators that are turning up to watch games. We know it's difficult for teams to stop people in public parks but we are asking if All clubs can once again remind the parents and spectators of the current rules asking that no spectators attend matches.
