Covid-19 Round 4 Update

An important covid-19 update. Due to the Covid-19 cases and the situation in the Nelson Bay with thousands of people getting tested for Covid. Our executive committee has met last night and discussed that due to the fact we have a large number of members who interact at the Bay for work, school and socialising, we agreed with full support from our associations to cancel all Tilligerry FC games, both home and away, this weekend to eliminate any risk of further outbreaks in our community and the wider community. This decision was not take lightly and is believed to be the best possible option for players, coaches, managers, committee members and referees, and also the wider community of Newcastle and the Hunter. As far as we are aware there are only 4 cases in the bay so far and they are all related in one family. The testing levels are in the thousands at the moment and we are hoping if it is contained and there are no further cases arising over the next week then we can resume playing the following weekend and for the rest of the season. We hope everyone understands and supports this decision.

Whilst many players will be very keen to get out on the park and get into the training, we understand that others may not want to continue this season. Tilligerry FC and it’s Committee are 100% committed to all our registered members and families and will be continuing to provide the opportunity to play Football IF any form of competition is to go ahead in 2020, taking into account any restriction or guidelines we will be required to adhere to, to protect the health and safety of our players, committee and families. If a season is to go ahead our committee will require support from our parent volunteer’s more than ever to assist in running our game days. We will no doubt receive further information in the near future in regards to any possible season on the back of the Government announcement yesterday in regards to children’s sport.
