Reserve Team Regular

Shoots. That is VERY rare (for a team to get to an LFA final without several step 4-5 players). e.g. the current Intermediate Cup holders Yalova are full of Saturday step 4-5 players. Someone who played against them last season described them as "basically a well drilled Saturday team" in disguise. One of their players is the captain of Waltham Forest FC in the Ryman League! (step 4)
The LFA Sunday Challenge Cup is of an exceptionally high standard. I still stand by what I said earlier: 80% of teams in this year's Challenge Cup would hold their own in any step 4-5 league.
Faithfold's league (Maccabi Sunday League) has many players who play on Saturdays in the Spartan South Midlands League (step 5-6).
Bedfont Town's league is a feeder to the Surrey Intermediate League (step 7b).
