Schools Competitions Update - 2020/21 Season

*Please note that the following statement is an update regarding inter-school competitions for the 2020/21 season, and does not affect the return to football after lockdown 3 for SSFA representative teams*

In recent weeks the association officers have, on a number of occasions discussed the current Covid-19 situation and how it affects the playing of Schools football, taking into account advice from the FA, ESFA and Government.

Decisions were made to suspend all inter school competitions at various age groups in the County Cup competitions.

It will come as no surprise that the Staffordshire CSFA confirm the cancellation of all school competitions for the season 2020-2021.

SSFA secretary Mark Warren will be contacting all schools later in the year to enquire about the participation of schools for the season 2021-2022.

If there are any issues that you wish to raise, please make contact with Mr Warren.

We were and continue to be ever mindful of the current situation within all schools and the added stress and workload that teachers are currently working under and our thoughts continue to be with colleagues and their families.

Please note again that this only applies to inter-school competitions. SSFA remain committed to continuing the 2020/21 season for our representative teams, resuming with the under 15 boys trial on Monday 29th March 2021.
