Rice Bowl - season 2020-21

Information regarding the competition.

In view of the current situation with the Covid19 virus, The Association has decided to delay the start of the Rice Bowl competition.  Instead of starting in September / October, the first round will begin early in the new year.  This will mean, for successful teams, one round of the competition every month until the final in mid May (after the SATs exams).

This has not been an easy decision to take since competitive football is allowed (by H. M. Government, the FA at Wembley and the English Schools FA).  However, many schools are very cautious, with some not allowing after-school clubs or extra-curricular activities.

Hopefully, by the new year, both schools and the population at large will be in a much better position to see the way forward.
