Club statement: Bristol Bears Women

We regret to announce that our opening Premier 15s fixture of the 2020/21 campaign against Wasps Ladies FC will no longer be played on Saturday, October 10th, following discussion and agreement with the RFU and Premier 15s.

The season’s opening fixture will be postponed until Saturday, October 31st as Bristol Bears Women are unable to field a side, due to one player contracting COVID-19. As a result, 19 of the club’s players and two members of staff are currently isolating following club protocols. None of these have tested positive.

Whilst we’re disappointed to not fulfil our opening day fixture, the safety of players and staff from both sides remains paramount in these unprecedented times, and we are fully cooperating with the RFU and Premier 15s on the matter.

Bristol Bears Women General Manager, Heidi Chapman-Mercer said: “The safety of all players and staff is our number one priority and once the situation was apparent to the club we have acted swiftly to prevent further spread of the virus.

“We have and will continue to abide by the regulations and work closely with the RFU, and Premier 15s to follow the appropriate guidance.”
