All football activity has been suspended across Suffolk in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
After Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged people to avoid all non-essential contact and stay at home if possible last night, Suffolk FA moved to suspend the game in the county.
That means that all matches, club training, courses and hearings will cease.
A Suffolk FA spokesman said: “Following this evening’s announcement from government advising against all non-essential travel and social contact, we advise all football-related activity in Suffolk be suspended until further notice.
“This includes all face-to-face training, matches, hearings, courses and meetings of any kind, with immediate effect where possible.
