Blackheath Football Club
Under the current COVID Greater Sydney lockdown restrictions, Blackheath FC teams cannot play
matches at Lithgow until further notice.
All other clubs in the LDFA are playing to an amended draw as they are not within the Greater Sydney lockdown zone.
Thank you to Lithgow City Rangers who assumed our responsibilities as Duty Club on 7th August.
12's and 14's.
In a decision made together with the parents and coaches of our 12's and 14's teams, we have advised LDFA
that the Blackheath FC participation in the 12's and 14's season is now over.
If the current lockdown finishes as proposed at the end of August 2021, the next match our 12s and 14s could
have played would have been 28 August. That would have been the second week
of finals matches (semi-final 21 Aug, final 28 Aug, grand final 4 Sep).
To accommodate our return, LDFA would have had to re-schedule the finals or extend the season.
This would have depended on ground availability, referee availability and player availability.
With no definite end to the current lockdown it was deemed to be the best scenario, as a whole raft of changes
would have have been made and then we may not have been able to fulfil those changes.
6's, 7's, 8's, 9's and 10's
Assuming the current lockdown finishes on 28th of August, those teams will have a chance
to play in the Gala Day on 28 August, the last day of the season.
We are currently in discussion with the relevant coaches, finding out if these teams are keen to
join Gala Day if lockdown permits.
Training for Blackheath FC teams at Blackheath Oval is not permitted under the current restrictions.
Lithgow District Football published the 2021 season draw on 18th April 2021.
Blackheath FC now has two U6 teams for the rest of the season, although we started with one.
The season runs during school terms 2 and 3, but not during the June school holidays.
The season ends in August or September depending on a
team's age group.
Mixed adult social 7 -a-side is not going ahead due to a lack of player
