Liverpool FC Women manager Vicky Jepson has penned the following note for supporters.

I just wanted to take this chance to send a message to our supporters during these difficult times for everyone.

Please look after yourselves and your families, follow the expert advice as much as you can and reduce the risks to yourself and everyone around you.

I’m sure you will also think of those in your community who may need help from others as well.

Following the latest medical advice, Liverpool FC Women this week shut down our training base, with the players continuing their fitness programmes at home until it is safer for us to come back together.

As much as we can’t wait to play our next game, everyone’s health and well-being is paramount.

The team, staff and myself look forward to seeing all our fans again as soon as it is possible to do so.

Until then, please take care of yourselves and your loved ones,
