BRIDGWATER Town are set to resume their 2020/21 Buildbase FA Vase campaign on Saturday, April 17.

The Robins have progressed to the fourth round of the competition with wins over Welton Rovers (5-0), Royal Wootton Bassett Town (2-1) and Brimscombe & Thrupp (5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw), setting up a home tie with fellow Toolstation Western League Premier Division side Tavistock.

The competition has been on pause during the Covid-19 lockdown, but now the FA has announced its return, subject to any change in government guidance.

Last month it was announced that the Western League season had been terminated, but Bridgwater do have FA Vase and Les Phillips Cup matches to look forward to.

Outstanding third round matches in the Vase are scheduled for Saturday, April 10, with the Robins to welcome Tavistock to Fairfax Park the following weekend.

The winner of that match will enter the fifth round (Saturday, April 24), with the sixth round to follow on May 1, the semi-finals on May 8 and the final on May 22.

The government's roadmap for the easing of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions states that fans will not be allowed back into sporting venues until May 17 at the earliest, and a statement on Bridgwater's club website said: "We await clarification on the return of spectators."

This week a guide released by the FA stated that: "The current understanding at DCMS [Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport] is that spectators for non-elite football will be under the same categorisation as outlined for all spectators in the roadmap.

"Therefore, unless informed otherwise, we believe all fixtures will need to be behind closed doors until no earlier than May 17, except for any person(s) spectating for safeguarding purposes."
