A general reminder making from NBBC reminding teams to take litter (bottles, tapes etc.) home with them, we’ve had an enquiry/complaint – specifically relating to Vale View. More now than ever, we shouldn’t be expecting anyone to pick up someone else’s rubbish.

It is great to see Football continue at at Sandon Park but I am getting increased complaints from residents at Cleaver Gardens about parking issues. The vast majority of people are parking sensibly but we do have a few who park on the pavements, across dropped kerbs, in residents parking area and on corners.
It would be very useful to add a note about considerate parking on your newsletters as some of the residents are being significantly annoyed by a very few who park badly. I understand how difficult things are with COVID stopping things like car sharing. Cllr Keith Kondakor
Litter at our Venues - Comment from a Member of the Public.
I am a bit concerned on the amount of rubbish that is left on the side lines after football matches on a Sunday, it doesn't take 5 minutes, for teams to pick it up and dispose of it. Also when teams take down their nets they leave all the tape on the ground this also doesn't take long to pick up. Could this problem be addressed at club level. I don't travel around the pitches, what I said above is just an example from the Avenue Road pitches in Nuneaton....
National Lockdown - Covid-19 !
Updated News - Jan 6th 2021
Following the Government announcement earlier this week, placing England in a 3rd
lockdown, all football at Grassroots level, including training, is now
cancelled which means that no fixtures will take place in the NDSFL up to and
including Monday February 15th.
The review of the current lockdown is due to take place on February 15th so
we will keep you up to date nearer the time to let you know what will happen
BCFA are holding a Zoom meeting for member leagues next Wednesday 13th
January which Glynn will be joining. I understand there are several items on
the agenda one of which is the continuation of the 2020-2021 season. No
decisions have been made yet by anyone so it's too early to predict what might
happen, but the FA are in constant dialogue with the Department of Culture
Media and Sport and it will be as result of those discussions as to what
happens to the rest of the season.
At this point in time the NDSFL do not have any intentions to bring the
season to an end. There are no cup fixtures this season only league matches and
some clubs are a third of their way through fixtures, some close to half way
through. We are therefore confident that if the current National Lockdown works
and coupled with the role out of the Vaccine, that restrictions are lifted and
we drop back into Tier 3, we will be able to complete the season. However there
are a number of factors at play here and we are constantly reviewing the
situation nationally and locally.
When we have any more information we will share it with you.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Glyn Watkins as General Secretaryto replace John Clark who recently retired. Glyn brings a wealth of experience having held a similar position with the Hinckley Sunday Football League.
