Grassroots football suspended

AMATEUR football in Rotherham will be paused on Thursday as part of England's second nationwide lockdown.

As a result of the UK Government’s new national Covid-19 restrictions and subject to Members of Parliament voting tomorrow, all fixtures and training for senior, women's and junior football taking in Steps 3 and below of the league system will be suspended until Wednesday, December 2.

The suspension also applies to indoor teams.

The Government has confirmed that school sport can continue as an exemption during this period.

The FA said added in a statement: "We remain in dialogue with the DCMS, leagues, competitions and CFAs and will provide further clarification for ‘non-elite’ football in England following the debate in the House of Commons tomorrow."
