GRASSROOTS football is hoping to be back in Trowbridge and district within days of the current Covid-19 lockdown being over.
The lockdown is due to finish in England on December 2 and, in readiness for that should it happen, both the Wiltshire Senior League and Trowbridge and District League have published the next fixtures for their teams in the respective competitions.
And it will see a home fixture for Trowbridge Town in the Wiltshire Senior League Premier Division – and a tough one to re-start their season.
Trowbridge will be taking on unbeaten second-placed Royal Wootton Bassett Town Development at Woodmarsh on Saturday December 5.
Should the match go ahead with Royal Wootton Bassett Town Development, weather permitting, it will mark the end of six long weeks since Trowbridge last played which was a 2-0 defeat away at league leaders Pewsey Vale on October 24.
And it will not get any easier for Trowbridge on Saturday December 12 when they are due to be at home again in a derby against fifth-placed Frome Collegians.
The Trowbridge and District League will kick-off again on December 5 with a Division One clash between Semington Magpies and Warminster Town Reserves, which is quite a big clash for both as they are level on points just above the bottom of the table.
Semington Magpies then go into Wiltshire Junior Cup action the following week when they play Ramsbury at home, with Hilperton United re-starting their campaign on December 12 in the cup away to Spectrum.
Meanwhile, Trowbridge Town Reserves get going again on December 5 with an away clash in the A&B Cup against Calne Eagles.
And Staverton United face a massive game to start again when the Wiltshire Senior League Division Two second-placed side travel to third-placed Dilton Marsh Wanderers.
