NORTHWICH Victoria chairman Brian Turner says changes will continue to be made in line with Government and FA guidelines in order for everyone's safety at the football club.

Pre-season friendly fixtures are up and running and these will continue to take place behind closed doors until further notice due to the risk of coronavirus.

"The FA has instructed that all clubs have a nominated Covid officer and I have taken on responsibility for this, along with Andy Murphy and Mark Tonge," says Turner in his latest statement published today.

"The risk assessment, which will be on the (club's) website by tonight, gives details of what safety measures have been put in place which incorporates the necessary compliance which will keep us within the government and FA guidelines.

"We have made many changes to keep everyone safe and we will continue to do so as the rules change and we are able to welcome supporters again in the future.

"It is not a great situation knowing that people can not come and watch their team and are unable to provide the much needed income that games bring to every club.

"The restrictions are subject to change and we will keep you updated regularly on any developments that arise."

Turner revealed that the Dr. Vijay Anthwal Cup, with gate donations going to the NHS, will no longer be up for grabs when Vics play Witton Albion at Wincham Park on August 22.

"Both clubs have agreed that the match be rearranged at a date when supporters may attend," said Turner.

"The match on the 22nd will still go ahead as a normal friendly, but behind closed doors."
