Re: [Chapeltom] Applications to Manchester/Cheshire League?
The problem is the amount of West Cheshire League sides on the Wirral. The top end of the Wirral to Gamesley/Denton/Whaley Bridge is in and around the 60 mile mark.
My personal perception has always been the WCL is a Wirral and Liverpool league.
The combined number of sides in the WCL and CFL is 89 sides, with 30+ reserve sides. That would possibly result in 4 divisions of first teams, 3 divisions of reserve sides. I'm not sure myself, though there are more far clued up posters on here than me.
The other problem in any possible merger is the difference in standard. With very few exceptions the Cheshire League teams (despite its pretentious dropping of the "Mid" a few years ago) are no match for their West Cheshire equivalents.
By the way Tom you should also be aware there is an Altrincham and District (Saturday) league not all that far from you ...
If I was organised, I'd be Dangerous.
