Following a meeting of the Northumberland FA Council we are pleased to announce that blackout weekends in youth football would continue for this season 2018/19.
It was decided that these blackout weekends, which will predominantly coincide with school holidays, would be a welcome addition to the grassroots football calendar.
The purpose of the blackout weekends is to give players, coaches, parents/guardians and pitches a break throughout the grassroots football season.
The decision was made that no youth football will be played within Northumberland FA on the following dates:
- 3rd & 4th November 2018
- 23rd & 24th February 2019
- 20th & 21st April 2019
