Non Elite Football Suspended Following Latest COVID 19 Restrictions nike 'NON-ELITE' FOOTBALL SUSPENDED FOLLOWING LATEST COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS An update for ‘non-elite’ football in England following latest COVID-19 restrictions We note the UK Government’s announcement this evening with regards to the new national COVID-19 restrictions and lockdown. As a result, the impact on ‘non elite’ football in England will include the suspension of fixtures and training across the following, with immediate effect:

Steps three to six of the National League System (NLS)
Tiers three to seven of the Women’s Football Pyramid
Regional NLS feeder leagues
Barclays FA WSL Academy League (unless under elite status)
FA Girls Regional Talent Clubs (unless under elite status)
All indoor and outdoor youth and adult grassroots football, including under 18s (except organised outdoor football for disabled people which is allowed to continue)
Vitality Women’s FA Cup (which is currently classified as ‘non-elite’ at this stage in the competition)

It is extremely important that clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents, carers and facility providers adhere to the UK Government’s new national COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and we implore everyone to follow these. Dialogue will continue with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, leagues, competitions and County FAs and we will provide further updates for the 2020/21 Vitality Women’s FA Cup, Buildbase FA Vase and ‘non-elite’ football when relevant. We would like to thank the football community once again for its hard work, resilience and understanding during such an incredibly challenging period for both the game and wider society.

Tommy Dixon Services to Football Award 2020

The Barkston Ash F.A. have awarded Bill Reay the 'Tommy Dixon services to football award' for 2020 in recognition of his loyal service to football over the last 35 years. Bill started as a referee in 1988 after taking redundancy from Drax Power Station. He went on to become one of the counties most popular & consistent match officials doing games every Saturday, Sunday & often mid-week. He has been involved in many County; District; & local league finals as either a referee or assistant referee & in the 1990's was a regular assistant referee on the North East Football League Youth Alliance for the U18 teams. Bill became the Barkston Ash District referee instructor & delivered many courses introducing local referees to the County, many of whom are still refereeing today - some at a high level. Throughout is time as an active official he also acted as a mentor to the up & coming referees, offering advice on how they could improve their games. He was also the local referees society secretary for many years, never missing a meeting & is now a life member of the Barkston Ash R.A., a life member of the West Riding R.A., & an honorary life member of the Leeds R.A. Bill attended many Referees Association meetings as their guest & was always made welcome. He also served on the local district Barkston Ash F.A. & was a life member of the Selby Football League until it was dissolved a few seasons ago. Such was his dedication & popularity that Bill became a regular supply league referees assessor / observer, also doing several local league referees assessments / observations, sometimes spending many hours away from home travelling all over the West Riding whilst offering his time in support of referees. Of course all this assessment & observation then required many more hours spent writing detailed reports on the referees & assistant referees, offering written guidance on how to improve their games in order to reach a higher standard.
nfortunately, due to the national pandemic, Bill & his wife Rita are having to self-isolate / shield, so the Barkston Ash have been unable to present the award to Bill, so it is with thanks to Bills son George - himself a former referee, for presenting the award on behalf of the Barkston Ash F.A.


Season 2020-21

The following statement was released from WRCFA on 7th August, it was not a big surprise, I suspected that if County Cups were not going ahead it would be difficult for District Cups to go ahead as normal. Our competitions will not be sanctioned so will not be able to be played , I understand this decision and its very disappointing but I think in the current climate we are in with Covid 19 , the leagues must have priority to try and get the season started and completed this year.
Thanks to all clubs who entered this seasons competitions and for your continued support  and we will look forward to having you all back for the District Cups in 2021-22


County Cup Competitions and Ad-Hoc Competitions (Including District Associations) Season 2020-21

I write to inform you that the West Riding Cups Competitions Committee and Membership Regulations Committee have approved the following;

1. The West Riding FA SHALL NOT operate any County Cup Competitions for the forthcoming season (2020-21)
2. The West Riding FA SHALL NOT sanction any Ad-Hoc Competitions for the forthcoming season (2020-21)

West Riding FA are mindful of the added logistical requirements imposed by the FA and government as a result of Covid-19 on league competition providers and the uncertainties that lie in the months ahead with respect to management of the virus in society and within sport specifically.

West Riding FA recognise the difficulties leagues will no doubt experience over the coming months and hope that the decision to postpone delivery of County Cup Competitions and Ad-Hoc Competitions will help alleviate unnecessary pressure on leagues during these uncertain and challenging times.

West Riding FA will continue to work with leagues to effectively the ‘manage the return to football’.
