"As a club we have been liaising throughout the day with the PHA providing all their requested information and as a result the PHA may contact any club members if they deem it necessary to do so for contact tracing.

"After a very proactive conversation with the Public Health Agency we have taken their advice to suspend all club activities until Monday, 3rd August 2020, at the earliest. 

"We will be taking further advice from them as the week goes on and so this date is subject to possible change.
