Lucas Smith our U10s Whites player tragically lost his Dad Grant Smith on the 31st August age 36. Grant was a regular at all the Moss Bank U10s Whites games with Lucas and Grant had lots of friends across the club age groups. Lucas also has a number of friends at the club. Lucas has been at the club since he was 6 years old and played at U7s,U8s, U9s and U10s. Moss Bank JFC send their deepest condolences to Gemma, Lucas, Aria and all of Grants family and friends.

There has been a GoFundMe page set up to to help the family  during this difficult times and if you wish to support the family please follow the link and donate any amount to support Gemma, Lucas, Aria and their family.

Your support would mean a lot to me. Thank you so much!

Team Smith!

Please be mindful that Lucas as a number of friends at Moss Bank JFC and the family are trying to shield Lucas from the awkward questions he may be asked by other friends he as at the club so could we ask for those children that know him to be mindful that he may not want to talk at this time about his Dad. We are sure over time he will want to talk about his Dad.

Thanks Moss Bank JFC

Dear Club Members,

Firstly we hope that you and your families are all well. These have been testing times for all of us.

On behalf of Moss Bank JFC we would like to thank you all for your support and patience during this ongoing crisis situation.

Following our communication on the 2nd April 2020 and the recent guidance from the Football Association and the Lancashire Football Association we are now updating you on our current position and next steps.

In light of the FA and government announcement re; the relaxation of rules relating to grassroots football the MossBankJFC Senior Management Team have met. Sadly at this stage the club feel we cannot safely facilitate the return of training at MossBankJFC. We are as keen as you all to get everyone back training but we want to do this safely. The welfare of your children is paramount. The welfare and safety of all our members, volunteers and coaches is also paramount.

We will keep this under review and are conducting ongoing risk assessments and liaising with Lancashire FA who on the 2nd June have also advised teams not to undertake any outdoor football training under the current guidelines. The Senior Management Team will meet again in 14 days to keep you all updated. As of the email communication on the 2nd April 2020 the below activities are cancelled or suspended. The club continues to be in hibernation:

Training Sessions – suspended

Matches and Friendlies – suspended

Our own club end of season Tournaments – cancelled

AGM – suspended

No Moss Bank JFC teams are to undertake any training at this time under the Moss Bank JFC banner. We thank you all for your ongoing support through these difficult times. Please keep updated about all club related information via Twitter: @mossbankjfc Instagram: @officialmossbankjfc FaceBook: Moss Bank JFC and our website:

Yours in football


The Senior Management Committee

#MossBankJFC following the FA’s guidelines released today a club statement will follow in due course – we thank you for your patience ⚽️ in the meantime there will be no resumption of training or activities under the @mossbankjfc banner ⚽️ 💚💙 We as a club will be reading the below guidelines and will update in due course. We are all desperate to get back to normality and train but this has to be done safely and COVID restrictions put in place following government and FA guidelines. We will not put children, parents, coaches at risk until we have fully assessed our options. Thanks again.

Consistent with Government advice published on Monday 1 June, the following outdoor football activity is currently permitted:

• playing football individually. For example, practice of individual skills or fitness activities;

• playing football with your family or other people living in your household;

• football training or fitness activities in groups of no more than six, keeping two metres apart at all times.

Sharing of equipment should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practices should be in place before and after. Physical contact with anyone outside of your household is not permitted, therefore playing of any games (small-sided or full) is also not permitted at this time. Avoid meeting in groups of six in busy or overcrowded areas if it is so busy that it is not possible to maintain social distancing at all times.

Football coaches can now undertake small group sessions up to six people (including the coach) but are reminded to follow FA safeguarding policy when coaching/working with children. This must include risk assessing the activities, gaining consent from parents/carers and ensuring you are in sight of another adult. For example, a parent/carer or another coach and that the ratio of coach to different age-groups of children is appropriate – see download 5.5 . For clarity, the additional parent/carer or coach is not included as part of the group of six but must remain in sight of the activity.

It is permissible for coaches to organise a training session that has two or more groups of six (including the coach) involved in the session, as long as the groups of six are kept separate, everyone is socially distancing and strict hygiene measures are in place with any equipment.

Football coaches working with people with impairments must ensure they can adequately cater for any additional needs whilst still avoiding physical contact and maintaining social distancing. Individuals should follow Government guidance relevant to their own impairment or health condition.

Please be reminded, if an individual is symptomatic, living in a household with a possible COVID-19 infection or if you’re classified as extremely vulnerable on health grounds, the guidance is that you should remain at home.

We continue to work closely with DCMS and Sport England in order to set out good practice guidance for those responsible for delivering different aspects of grassroots football and we will provide further updates to as guidance information is shared.
