THE Pitching In Northern Premier League and Isthmian League have followed suit from the Southern League and will start on the same date next season.

The 2021/22 campaign at Steps 3 and 4 is due to get underway on Saturday, August 14.

The Southern League announced in mid-March their plan to restart.

League chiefs will be hoping to complete a season for the first time in three years after the 2019- 20 campaign was declared null and void last March, before the 2020-21 campaign was curtailed back in February after a truncated period, caused by the UK lockdown.

Indeed, few league games have been played since the season was suspended at the start of the second lockdown in November with only a handful of matches taking place over Christmas in the Northern Premier League.

Hopes were finally dashed of a season restart in February with no club across Steps 3 or 4 having played any more than ten league games – some as few as four.

Announcing the start date, an Isthmian League spokesman said: “We very much look forward to seeing you all again, but before you ask, because it’s always the next question, no, we don’t yet know when the fixtures will be released!”
