Parents and Carers FAQs

Parents and Carers Frequently Asked Questions

Can I attend a match in which my child is playing given all the new Coronavirus restrictions?

Now that Greater Manchester is in Tier 4, only one parent per player can attend a match at home or away. The Club has to enforce this rule at all home matches. When arriving at a home match, both the player and the parent must pass through the monitored entrance together. Any parents who seek to enter without accompanying a player will be turned away.

Can I attend a training session involving my child all the new Coronavirus restrictions?

No parents are allowed to attend training sessions. Parents can drop off their children, but cannot enter the restricted area for training.

For those teams which train at Wellacre, parents can drop off their children in the top car park nearest the entrance to the All-Weather Pitch, but cannot pass the gate to the fields. If parents wish to wait in their car, then they must park in either the lower or sixth form car park and await their children.

What does the Club expect from me when supporting my child at training and matches?

The Club requires that all parents, carers and spectators follow the ‘Parents, Carers and Spectators Code of Conduct’, which is:
