NWCFL season suspended until December 19th – West Didsbury & Chorlton AFC

NWCFL season suspended until December 19th

Following tonight’s announcement from the NWCFL, the club can confirm that the upcoming men’s First Team fixtures versus Sandbach United and Cammell Laird 1907 have been postponed due to enhanced Tier 3 restrictions.

Under new restrictions, the fixtures – set to take place on December 5th and December 12th respectively – can only go ahead without spectators, something we and many other clubs in Tier 3 areas are unwilling to do.

The club and NWCFL will now await the next government Tier review on December 16th before deciding on any further fixture announcements. Should Tier 3 restrictions remain in place for the majority of NWCFL clubs following this review, the season restart will likely be postponed until January 2nd 2021.

Fans will note that the NWCFL season has been extended into June to allow for the backlog of fixtures following the current nationwide lockdown.
