Northumberland FA is currently following Government advice regarding Coronavirus, and re-iterating the need for good hand hygiene at all times.
We are not currently issuing specific advice regarding pre and post- match handshakes. However, if individual clubs, teams and managers wish to use an alternative greeting, or no greeting at all, this should be agreed with your opposing team before the match and communicated to the referee in advance.
We will of course keep the situation under review and will update our guidance should the Government’s position change. Current Public Health England guidance is available here.
