Head of CCO Mark Hemingray said: “We’ve worked within EFL Guidelines to ensure that any activities delivered to those at risk, in particular ‘Active Minds’, are cancelled – however whilst some activities remain on, these will remain under consistent review in accordance with the guidelines outlined by both the government and our governing body, the EFL and EFL Trust.

“Football in the Community will remain open for business, however we ask that a customer’s primary method of contact be via calling 01623 656 920 or emailing community@mansfieldtownfitc.net.

Mansfield Town Football in the Community advise any parent whose child attends a FITC ran activity within school, check with the school that the activity is going ahead, and can also confirm that our Easter Holiday clubs will be going ahead as planned.
