Lockdown Latest

This time of the year we are usually enjoying many of our teams playing in Cup Finals as we end the season and look forward to Summer Tournaments, Trips to Holland and of course Presentation Day.

Unfortunately season 2019/20 is not like any normal season as the whole world is caught up in the Covid-19 Pandemic causing major disruption to everyday life for everyone.

The main and most important thing above all is that hopefully everyone stays safe and healthy and we come out the other side.

In terms of Upton Football Club we know people are keen to get back to training and playing but we have to be patient and follow guidelines set for us in terms of large gatherings and social distancing.

For that reason we have had to take the decision to cancel this year’s Presentation Day set for June. We know this will be disappointing for everyone and it was not a decision taken lightly but unfortunately was the only option left open for us. We also took the decision to suspend subs payments for the last few months which we hope was helpful to many at this time.

That in effect ends the 2019/20 season and we look ahead to what we hope will be the 2020/21 season. At the moment we have no idea when this will start or when people will be allowed to start training and mixing again so we ask everyone again to be patient, when we have any news your managers will be in touch with you.

This is an unprecedented time and we have no answers at the moment but again stay safe and we look forward to all meeting up again as soon as possible.


Stephen Turk – Chairman Upton FC
