Grown-up and youth matches and preparing would now be able to continue in the eight regions – Pendle, Burnley, Hyndburn, Rossendale, Blackburn with Darwen, Ribble Valley, Preston and South Ribble – where it was recently prohibited until January.

Lancashire FA said it had worked with The FA and government “to recognize strategies to relieve the dangers initially distinguished” and this had “empowered an adjustment in wellbeing exhortation”.

CEO Simon Gerrard had made the declaration followed chats with nearby specialists and wellbeing authorities.

  • The suspension had influenced 900 groups and around 27,000 players.
  • Lancashire has been in level three since lockdown finished.
