LOCAL amateur football is poised for a possible pause as the country approaches a second lockdown from Thursday.

Leagues below the National Leagues North and South could be asked to postpone fixtures until lockdown ends on December 2 if the latest clampdown to control rising Covid-19 cases is approved in Parliament on Wednesday.

Rotherham's senior and junior clubs are still waiting for guidance from the FA, who are themselves awaiting information from the Government.

Maltby Main, meanwhile, have been drawn away to Consett from County Durham in the second round of the FA Vase.

The Miners put out Newcastle University 3-1 at Muglet Lane on Saturday with goals from Mitchell Dunne, Connor Cutts and Aiden Nagi.

The tie in the North East is scheduled for November 28, subject to change.
