THE county’s clubs in the Pitching In Southern League and Uhlsport Hellenic League have been given a restart date to work towards.

The fixture lists have been suspended during the second coronavirus lockdown.

But after consulting with their member clubs, both competitions have come to the same conclusion.

Providing the national restrictions are lifted on December 2, the games will restart on December 12.

The Southern League have said if clubs want to play in the week before they would have no objections.

Elsewhere, Oxford City have a good chance to measure themselves against one of the division’s fast starters on Saturday.

It is still a week before the Emirates FA Cup second-round trip to Shrewsbury Town and boss David Oldfield will want to ensure the priority is the league campaign.

After drawing 1-1 with Chippenham Town at Court Place Farm in midweek, City are at home again this weekend.

Eastbourne Borough, who sit fifth in the Vanarama National South table, are the visitors.
