Dear Parents/Guardians/Coaches, 


Our main aim is the safeguarding of the players and our staff. 


We have received this letter from the London FA & The London County Saturday Youth Football League.  They have advised that we cancel all matches and training, as of TODAY; until further notice. (Letter attached below).


We will be closing the office for 2 weeks so the staff can self-isolate. 

During this period, we will await the governments guidance on how we move forward.  


Any queries please email


During this period, we will keep you updated on developments.



Warm Regards

Allan Hogg

Dear Member Clubs,

    It is with regret that due to the Corona virus the league have been advised by THE FA to stop all football until further notice, this is to include training, matches and friendlies, this is a big blow to the league as so much work goes into the running of the league. 


When we can play, we will try to get the cup finals running and finished so we can have the finals.


The league is still doing things behind the scenes getting ready for next season so look out for the emails. 


Graham Harknett

On Behalf of the league’s management committee

Dear Parents/Guardians,


It is important to acknowledge these are challenging times for everyone. Our role during this time is to ensure Bedhead FC remains a calm, safe and supportive place. We know our players feel safest when normal routines are followed. 


I appreciate this will be disappointing for players but after consideration and following the government’s latest advice the leagues have taken the decision to postpone matches until further notice.


Training will still continue at the parents/guardians discretion, until we are advised otherwise. However, following the latest government advice we will continue to be impacted by staff absence and as a result we may need to combine teams.


It is important to reiterate the current advice and guidance;

Players should not come into training if they are unwell and stay at home for fourteen days if he/she has any of the following;


• a high temperature, or

• a new, continuous cough


As part of the new guidance, anyone living in a household with somebody who has either a persistent cough or fever must now also isolate themselves for 14 days.


Good Hygiene Measures


As always, it’s important to practice good hygiene measures to help protect against infections, including:

• wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds

• always wash your hands when you get home or into work

• use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

• covering your mouth and nose with a tissue while coughing or sneezing and safely disposing of the tissue

• put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards

• try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

• do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.


Be safe, be clean, think hygiene! 



Warm Regards

Allan Hogg
