FIFERS FOR THE COMMUNITY SCIO
Fifers For The Community are delighted that East Fife Community Football Club is now back in action on the 3G surface at Bayview.
Michelle and the EFCFC committee have put in a power of work to interpret a very lengthy document issued by the SFA to ensure that all U17 groups can get back into training and limited games within the club set-up. Every step of the way the safety of players and coaches has been paramount.
The pitch has been divided into four quarters and up to 10 players and 2 coaches can train in each quarter. For the three weeks leading up to schools opening there will be around 35 x 1 hour sessions each week for all age groups and to demonstrate the commitment of the EFCFC committee and coaches there will also be a football camp every day from 1pm – 4pm, Monday to Friday and there are still vacancies.
It would be near impossible to list all the precautions which have been put in place but they include:
- A one-way entry and exit system ensuring groups do not mingle.
- Cleaning equipment between each session.
- Cleaning toilets between each session.
- Registers of contact details for all players.
Prior to the opening EFCFC and the FFTC caretakers spent time deep cleaning the toilet facilities and signage with details of the one-way system, safety instructions etc was put up around the ground.
FFTC hope that the contribution from the EFCFC committee, parents and FFTC caretakers is recognised for helping to make EFCFC a set-up which can match most organisations in Scotland.
