We have all in the last few weeks entered a period of uncertainty with work, business and most important of all our families due to COVID-19.
Following advice from the government and Football Association today we will be ceasing all activity until further notice. This includes all football and function facilities. Our player, staff and volunteer welfare is our first priority.
We do rely on income from gate receipts and bar takings so our business will most certainly be affected in the short term. Measures are being put in place to reduce the impact as much as possible and as a board we will be working hard behind the scenes. The constant support of our sponsors and donors is as important as ever and we appreciate all they do to help the club.
It is no secret that we have gone through a massive period of change in the last 18 months. We have undoubtedly made progress in that time and with all of our best efforts we will not let this undo all of that hard work.
In the meantime we are still running our sponsorship offer, season ticket offer and monthly bonus ball scheme. Any support of the above would be greatly welcomed at this time.
Thank you all for your support of the club from our supporters right through to all of our players and parents in the junior teams who represent the club so well.
Stay safe, look after yourselves and your loved ones.
Executive Board, Ashington AFC
