Boris Johnson has announced that grassroots sport is set to resume on March 29.

This is according to the governments roadmap, set out on Monday and will allow the return of tennis, football, golf and other outdoor sports.

In a statement, Cornwall Football Association said: "We are delighted to hear that ‘organised, outdoor sport’ can resume from March 29.

"We await the detailed playing guidelines from The FA and Government and will be working with leagues, clubs and referees and our wider football community to restart football."

The government also want to see spectators back in stadiums after May 17. This is just in time for the Cornish Pirates final league game of the season, away to Jersey Reds on May 29.

The prime minister said: “The turnstiles of our sports stadia will once again rotate.”

In a statement, Sport England’s chief executive, Tim Hollingsworth said: “The prime minister’s roadmap for the return of sport and physical activity is very welcome and a clear recognition of how important it is to the nation’s physical and mental health.

“We know people are desperate to get back playing the sport they love and doing the activities they have so badly missed, and now it is at last in sight.”

Meanwhile a statement from the Football Association said: “The FA is absolutely delighted fans will be allowed back soon.

“The game is simply not the same without them and we look forward to the return of full stadia as soon as it is safe and possible.”

Elsewhere, the England and Wales Cricket Board said: "The ECB welcomes the government's decision to permit grassroots cricket to return across England in time for the start of the 2021 season."

Children's sport is to be made a priority with outdoor after-school sports and PE lessons restarting when schools reopen on March 8.

Alongside the return of fans, indoor sport is also planned to resume on May 17 - the same time the rule of six for indoor gatherings is planned to come into place.

Open air swimming pools will also be able to reopen on March 29, however gyms and indoor leisure centres will not be given the go ahead to open their doors before April 12.

Non-elite sport was brought to a halt on January 4 when the country entered a third national lockdown.
