Think if leagues feel their playing strength is strong enough they apply used to be only step 7 leagues or small islands when it was NLS trophy since 2010 it has been Inter league cup and open to anybody AFAIK
I don't think entry criteria has changed. It's step 7 leagues and non-NLS leagues who are invited as far as I know. The Southern Amateur League (my league) has been invited 4 times and accepted that entry on each occasion. The invitation went via the county FA who also put forward the Amateur Football Combination.
