Planning for the end of the season

North Coast Football (NCF) HAS released a plan to conclude junior and senior competitions for when New South Wales Government imposed lockdown ends.
 
The government imposed a one-week lockdown last Saturday, which is due to end this Saturday at midnight.
 
NCF, in consultation with clubs, has developed plans for a return to football should the lockdown be lifted in time for this Sunday or the following week.
 
Many competitions have either completed their regular seasons or are on the verge of finals.
 
As it now stands, a day of competition will be lost this Saturday due to the lockdown, putting competition a week behind original schedules.
 
Community football, involving juniors and most seniors in the Coffs and Clarence, will have their grand finals on 10, 11 and 12 September as initially planned. The final series has been reduced from three matches to two to cover the week lost due to the lockdown.
 
Junior and Senior grand finals will be played at C.ex Coffs International Stadium in the South and Barry Watts Oval Maclean in the Clarence.
 
The Coastal Premier League (CPL) has lost two weeks of competition due to the lockdown. First-grade matches were postponed shortly before kick-off last Saturday, and matches were scheduled for this coming Saturday, before the scheduled end of the lockdown.
 
The CPL grand final will be moved back a week to cater for the two lost weeks. It will now be held at C.ex Coffs International Stadium on Saturday, 18 September 2021.
 
In Coffs, Masters football (over 30’s women and 35’s men) have had their grand finals moved to Friday, 17 September 2021.
 
Should the lockdown be extended for an additional week (two weeks in total), junior, senior, masters as CPL grand finals will occur Friday 17, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 September 2021.
 
MiniRoos football (five years to 11 years) will conclude on Saturday, 28 August 2021, should the lockdown be lifted this weekend.

There’s a strong want in the football community to conclude the season with finals.
 
We’re within touching distance of the finish.
 
If it is COVID-19 safe to do so, we would like to be back on the pitch as soon as possible.
 
At present, the lockdown is scheduled to finish Saturday at midnight, and we’re ready to go.

Community sport is the fabric of regional communities and is essential to the mental health of young people.

The sooner we’re back on the pitch, the happier and healthier we will be.
