Heard from a source close to the committee that at tomorrows AGM, Wellington Amateurs (apparently lights are sorted) and AFC Wombourne (share with AFC Wulfs) are being recommended for promotion to the Premier, Willenhall will be replacing Gornal and Stafford swapping with Bartley Green from Mid Comb.
If above true, then I assume Darlaston and Bromyard will be getting relegated?
That seems starnge as i'm pretty certain that Wellington Ams didn't have their lights installed by the end of March which is the deadline.
Not sure details but at end April special meeting, all clubs were told by the league Chief Exec that they needed to have proof that contracts had been signed for lights and they would be operational for early next season.
Still it seems one rule for one and one for another. Ground Grading documents from the FA clearly state the deadline is the end of March, why are the West Midlands League making their own rules?
The deadline is the end of March in the season after promotion. Technically you only need the grade for the level you're in, except for step 5 to step 4 (where a grade E is required rather than the F for step 5), a few qualifications between step 2 & 1, and promotion into the Football League. However, it would be rather silly, both for the club and the league if a potential promotee does not have a pretty strong likelihood of obtaining the grade, particularly with floodlights, both on a planning permission and funding basis. So reasonable for the league to insist that some guarantees are in place that the work will be done, if promotion is approved.
Last new football ground (442) Mommsenstadion Tennis Borussia Berlin 1-2 SFC Stern (1/6)
