OTHER AREAS LOOKING TO FOLLOW CARLTON’S LEAD !
With plans for the City Couriers Direct Football Tournament in place, but waiting to hear if the government will lift restrictions on supporters at non league level after bars are allowed to re open for outdoor service on Monday April 12th, it is fascinating to know that many other areas are planning similar tournaments, but most are waiting to see if Supporters will be allowed in.
The Essex Senior League, The Northern League and The Southern Counties East League are among leagues preparing to run tournaments in April and May, but only if spectators are allowed to attend to make the operation tenable.
With the significant drop in deaths, hospitalisations and the vaccine rollout now covering a third of the population in the U.K., there is hope that supporters may be allowed in grounds after the 12th April, all be it at a restricted level and the rollout of the tournament is dependent on that.
Tommy Brookbanks (pictured) is the brainchild of the proposed Nottinghamshire tournament and is hopeful that will be the case.
A plan B is to hold a pre season tournament throughout July which the sponsors have said they will support, but the proposed Leagues committee is currently stuck in a holding position.
Finally details of Brian Dennett’s funeral will be announced in the coming days which this website understands will be streamed live, watch this space !
