WITH Devon and Dorset now in Tier 3 and part of Somerset in Tier 4, all local football has been suspended until further notice in the Devon & Exeter League, Perry Street League and Dorset League.
That means there will be no local matches played until at least the end of January.
A statement this afternoon from the Devon and Exeter League, in which Lyme Regis 1sts and Lyme Reserves play, said: “Following the movement of Devon to tier three from today by the Government, the JOMA Devon and Exeter Football League have reluctantly suspended all fixtures with immediate effect, until further notice.
“However, we will be reviewing the situation in two week time to assess the possibility of playing again on January 24th if the situation changes.
“Whenever we are able to return to play we will endeavour to give all clubs at least seven days notice with forthcoming fixtures.”
The Perry Street League, in which Lyme Rovers and Uplyme 1sts and 2nds play, had already made the decision to suspend all fixtures in January.
The South West Peninsular League, in which Axminster Town compete, has also suspended fixtures until further notice.
