Welwyn Garden City will return to competitive action on Tuesday but the restart of their league campaign may yet be put on ice.

The Citizens host Hednesford Town in the FA Trophy and were due to recommence Southern League fixtures on Saturday, December 12.

However, the announcement of which areas are in which tiers by the government, the start may yet be delayed.

There are 16 Southern League clubs in a tier three area while those in tier two will have draconian restrictions on their clubhouse.

The league said: “The board held several meetings over the weekend with the FA regarding last week’s announcement regarding COVID-19 restrictions.
