JUNIOR football training returned to Alloa last week.

The Wasp Community Club recently announced that its teams, as well as players in the Alloa Athletic Junior Academy, will be returning to the pitch with strict guidelines in place.

However, if anyone in a player's household is displaying symptoms of Covid-19, they are asked not to attend sessions.

Players and coaches will be required to sanitise their hands both before and after training sessions.

Young people attending should arrive ready to play with their name on their water bottle.

Players must not handle training equipment and may only use their feet during sessions.

All equipment will be disinfected before and after each session.

Young people will be allowed to take part in full contact training, including tackling, directly competitive practices and small sided games.

A two metre distance must be kept between players and coaches at all times, however.

Sessions will be fun and development focused and an accurate attendance record will be kept to enable contact tracing if necessary.

Family members, parents and carers will not be allowed to enter training facilities or congregate at entrances and exits.

Where possible, the club is asking families to operate a drop-off and pick-up system to avoid car park congestion.

Each squad will be allocated a one hour session once a week.

A maximum of 10 players and two coaches are allowed to participate in a session.

The club said adequate pitch space will be provided to accommodate the squads.

Coaches will be in touch with families directly with the full details.
