SOUTHERN League football is to remain on hold for now, following a vote by member clubs this week and subject to Football Association (FA) confirmation.

A statement released by the Pitching In Southern League last (Thursday) night said: "The clubs in membership of the Northern Premier, Southern and Isthmian Leagues (the Trident Leagues) met earlier this week to consider the challenges and issues brought about by the reintroduction of tiers after the raising of the nationwide lockdown with effect from yesterday.

"The clubs were asked to vote on a proposition that the pause in fixtures be continued with a regular review in light of changes to the tiers and/or grants becoming available - the first review to be no later than December 16.

"The total votes cast by the 224 clubs show a substantial number of clubs in agreement with the proposition.

"The matter has been considered today and is subject to comment by the FA."

Following the announcement there will be no first team games for local clubs Cirencester Town and Yate Town for at least another 2 weeks.
