Carlisle / Cumbria Floods

on Fri, 12/11/2015 - 11:46

It goes without saying that all of our thoughts and best wishes are with everyone affected by the devastating floods throughout Carlisle & Cumbria over the weekend. If there is anything we can do as a club, we will certainly try.

Our home, the Sheepmount has been badly affected, with damage to the main building & changing rooms, astro pitch, car park and maintenance compound.

As it’s our home, the club has made an offer to help with the clean-up.  At this stage we don’t know when this may be but we hope as many committee, coaches, parents and older age group players as possible will be able to assist.  We will confirm date(s) for this as soon as we can.

The Cumberland FA is reporting that many local football clubs and facilities in the City and County have been affected.  We wish everyone well in their clean-up efforts and hopefully we can work together to help.

CGLYFL have recently announced that all Under 8s to Under 18s fixtures have been postponed until after Christmas, along with all of the Girls Futsal games. The Under 7s Futsal this Sunday is to still go ahead at Caldew and the Under 11s League Cup games will now be on the Harraby 3G on 15th December. The Under 14s League Cup is also on at Harraby, Saturday from 10.00am.

Whilst relatively unimportant in the scheme of things, moving forward we would ask our players, parents and coaches to regularly check relevant league websites & social media feeds for news updates!
