Would it not be best to leave the dates as they are and continue to hope that the virus levels and all the rest of it continue to fall at the rate they are. This may help to open up options like use of changing facilities etc etc to be brought forward.
Everyone is delighted at the prospect of football coming back, but let’s not get to carried away and try to push our luck. Let’s ease back in with some contact training in accordance with the guidelines and then promote towards some friendlies for 2-3 weeks and then the tournament at the end of May. Let’s be honest, the tournament is surely going to be used as a pre season preparation programme anyway??
I disagree, that’s when injuries or serious injuries come into it mate. Your asking boys to do different kind of running they haven’t done since mid December. Right now we’re limited ie running/passing/ dribbling and shooting. Well, some teams will be following the rules.
