The NWCFL is reporting that "The FA has also confirmed that the application from West Didsbury and Chorlton to be promoted from Step 7 has been approved. The Manchester League club will therefore be presented to our member clubs for election to the NWCFL Division One in season 2012-13 at the League AGM in June."
West Didsbury and Chorlton finished seventh in the Manchester League this season and the NWCFL reported the following last December:-
"In order to be promoted, clubs must finish in ‘top’ position in their Step 7 league. If the club finishing in top position does not wish to be promoted or fails to meet the entry criteria, then the club finishing in 2nd position will be eligible for promotion. If the club in 2nd position does not seek promotion or fails to meet the entry criteria, then clubs down to 5th position may be considered for promotion, provided that they meet the appropriate entry criteria. This was agreed by the Leagues Committee at a recent meeting and will be incorporated into the Regulations.
Clubs finishing below 5th position will not be considered for promotion and ONLY ONE club will be considered from each league."
I don't see how they can promote them if they stick to these rules but it would be good to see some new blood in the NWCFL 1st Division.
