Step 7 promotion. IOM club in the mix? Can't Post or Reply Privately

There was a piece on the NWCFL website a week ago regarding promotion from step 7 to step 6.

"The FA have announced the procedures surrounding applications for promotion from Step 7 Leagues to a Step 6 League for Season 2013/2014.

The FA have made it clear that they will control and adjudicate on all applications, with the individual Step 6 Leagues having to accept whatever ruling is made with regard to applications. The only exception is where Step 6 competitions have Step 7 divisions as part of their Constitution, a situation which, of course, does not apply to the NWCFL.

Applications from Step 7 clubs must be received by the FA by 31st December 2012. Any applications received after that date will not be accepted.

The following rules will be strictly applied:

• To be considered for promotion a club must finish in 1st position in their Step 7 competition. If a club finishing in 1st position does not wish to be considered for promotion then a club finishing in 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th position may be considered. A club finishing below 5th position WILL NOT be considered for promotion. Only ONE club will be promoted from each Step 7 competition.

• In order to be considered for promotion a club MUST comply fully with the requirements of Grading Category H as at 31st March 2013.

• Clubs may be considered for promotion without having floodlights in place however, those clubs without floodlights must comply with the following requirements as at 31 March 2013:

o Planning permission for the provision of floodlights MUST have been approved by the Local Authority
o Evidence provided that funding applications have been submitted
o Evidence provided that the balance of any funding required is in place
o Evidence provided that quotations have been obtained from appropriate contractors
o Provide a copy of an appropriate development/installation plan

• Floodlights MUST be installed and in working order by 30th September 2013. Step 6 competitions would be at liberty to impose a penalty on any Club that failed to comply with this requirement. Clubs that fail to provide floodlights by 31 March 2014 will be classified as a relegated club regardless of their finishing position at the conclusion of Season 2013/2014.

• Clubs promoted to Step 6 MUST comply fully with the requirements of Grading Category G by 31st March 2014. Clubs that fail to achieve this Grade will be classified as a relegated club regardless of their finishing position at the conclusion of Season 2013/2014.

• Whilst existing ground share arrangements are acceptable, Clubs are reminded that new ground share arrangements are not permitted in order to gain promotion. A copy of any existing ground share agreements must accompany the application.

League Secretary John Deal said: “Although we welcome the FA’s statement of intent with regard to promotion to Step 6, I doubt if it will make much difference at all to us. As with any promotion criteria, its success relies on the will of the Clubs and the Leagues concerned.

“There is, in my opinion, two fundamental problems in the Step 7 Leagues - the lack of facilities at Clubs and the unwillingness of certain Step 7 Leagues to push Clubs forward for promotion. One should remember that whoever is at the bottom of a pyramid will suffer. As Clubs above fold due to financial problems etc., it reflects down the system, and as we all know there have been numerous seasons when no Club has been relegated from Step 4 to us.

“The Step 7 Leagues have a completely different attitude to promoting Clubs, and it is clearly not their main priority, as it is with us. What’s happened to the FA’s statement that each Step 6 League would have two quality Step 7 Leagues feeding into them? This appears to have been put on the back burner, or more likely there has been a realisation that a complete overhaul of the Step 7 Leagues is too big a task.

“We do get enquiries from clubs outside our League, but it is disappointing when some advisory ground grading visits reveal undersize pitches, no covered accommodation or no plans for floodlights. However, that being said, Ashville and South Sefton Borough both enquired last season, but unfortunately application deadlines (Ashville) and lack of cover (South Sefton Borough) prevented any progress.

“We have had enquiries this season and are hopeful that two Step 7 Clubs may apply. We have also had enquiries from Widnes Vikings FC (New Club), a Club from the Isle of Man, and a Welsh Club.

“In each of those instances there are issues to overcome. Widnes Vikings would have to pass the FA’s criteria for entry and make a good argument as to why they should be admitted to Step 6, when they currently don’t play in one of our Step 7 feeder Leagues. The Club from the Isle of Man would also have to be approved by the FA and have some form of financial package for visiting teams, similar to Guernsey FC.

“Welsh Clubs can’t be admitted to our League as FIFA regulations state that a Club must play in the Country of their National Association, although how that applies when a considerable number of Welsh Clubs play in the English System already is rather strange. Maybe someone will have to take the matter to the European Courts to get this issue resolved.

“At present it is a case of wait and see, but don’t hold your breath! All we can do is to remind people that we currently have four vacancies in our First Division (Step 6) and state again that if any Club in the Step 7 Leagues is considering applying for promotion, they should make it known us and their existing League, and make sure they apply to the FA by the 31st December"."

Well there are one or two posters on this forum who would agree with Mr Deal on this, but it seems odd that the secretary of a league anywhere near the Welsh border would not have troubled himself to find out what the rules actually are. It's not hard - he'd just need to read the FA's standard rules for step 5 leagues. Which are incorporated into the rules of his own league.

Of course, if the FAW object (which they usually do) then any Welsh application to an English league is dead in the water. But the FA explicitly permit it and always have done.

Moving on from the spectacle of a league secretary parading his ignorance, the possibility of an IOM club in the pyramid is definitely intriguing.

Will be interesting how the FA treat the Sussex County FL and promotion from their Division 3 which is Step 7 to Division 2 which is step 6, whilst Div 3 is step 7 currently they only have 12 teams so if they cannot find 2 more teams they will lose Step 7 status at the end of the season.

If the League Chairman hadn't pushed so hard for Division 1 to be increased from 20 to 22 teams, even though 20 is acceptable at Step 5, then they would not have the problem.

Yes it was a shame he did. Dont think he will doing much influencing this season, unfortunately he is on the sick list and has had to hand over most of his duties to others in the league whilst he undergoes medical treatment.

I don't agree it's a shame. His actions may have ensured Sussex and Kent stay at step 5. He was on the Leagues Committee so would have been involved in discussions about re-organisation. If the Sussex League stayed at 20 and then the FA decided to move a few of its teams into Kent to bolster up the numbers it could have led to the downgrading of Sussex. It also means teams can't be moved from Kent into Sussex as that's now full which may have ensured the Kent League keeps it's step 5 status.

Step 7 in Sussex can be bolstered up from the numerous local leagues around there. There are always a few teams looking to join Sussex 3.

It could be argued that with 22 teams, the FA would be able to allocate 2 of them to Kent and not downgrade the Sussex League.

As regards Division 3, there is a dearth of Clubs in the feeder Leagues with the required facilities which was discussed on the Nomad Forum when the two Clubs dropped out at the beginning of the season.

Blimey! All they need is a roped off pitch and separate dressing rooms for the two teams and officials to get into step 7.

Some of the Dressing Rooms are too small as Bosham found out when thay were ejected from the League. I haven't visited all the Ground so have had to base my contribution on what has been said previously of that other Forum.

Think we will have to agree to disagree on this one. Expanding to 22 teams is probably correct but the manner in which it was achieved was a shambles and did not put the league in a good light and has threatened the step 7 status of Division 3. There was no requirement to expand to 22 teams this season and it could have been done over the course of the next 2 seasons by going to 21 next season and 22 in season 2014/15 this would probably have allowed Division 3 to keep 14 teams which is the minimum needed.

Plenty of rumours were flying around some of which are true some not, but one of them was that despite Bosham not having the correct size dressing rooms they would not have been relegated from Division 3 if league officials had known of the plan to increase Division 1 to 22 teams early enough, by the time it was announced the decision to relegate Bosham had been taken and the league officials did not want to go back on their original decision.

There a few teams who play in the local leagues whose grounds would meet the minimum requirements for Division 3 but they are reluctant to join the County League. It seems the only teams that want to join are those who currently do not meet the minimum requirements.

The geographical spread is almost certainly a problem. For a club with the ground and playing record to justify applying for County 3 in, say, Hastings it's a huge step when your nearest game, at Rottingdean or Uckfield, would be farther than the furthest trip in your current division. Most of the teams showing an interest in recent years seem to have been from the West, which may tell its own story.

I think this would be a terrific addition to the NWCFL if a IOM team decided to join the ranks. At the moment, I'd rank the NWCFL Division 1 as the worst footprinted league at step 6, It travels from Barrow to Eccleshall, and besides Leek CSOB and Nelson, every other team in the league is in an around the Manchester area. It is in dire need of rejuvenation from other areas and in my eyes, this would be a sensational addition to their ranks, and hopefully, this would make other teams consider taking the step up in future seasons.

The other downside of Sussex Div 3 only having 12 teams is the lack of games left, with some facing 3 or 4 Home games left til the end of the season. Shocked

I am realibly informed they are currently out of use, but the club plans to get them usuable to facilitate promotion to Div 2. Also 4 or 5 clubs have expressed an interest in joining SCFL Div 3 next season but i have not been given any names of the clubs.

Indeed Sidleshams Lights are up and can easily be upgraded for use in Division 2 should they wish to return to Division 2 and Intermediate Football. Few grumblings when I saw them at Billingshurst last week as to potential additional cost to play in Division 2 next season, assuming they qualify of course.

But the alternative is 22 league games a season? Besides the Sussex Division Three stupidly covers the same area as Divisions One and Two, so I really can't see that they'd be any worse off - at least they'd be playing most weekends and have some travelling support!

I'm not a fan of Sussex D3 if it wasn't obvious! Get rid of it and promote the East and West Sussex Leagues to Step 7 status IMO! But thats for another thread!

As was mentioned before, Division 3 is becoming the West Sussex 'Super League' anyway so change is soon to be needed. Hopefully out of the 4/5 teams interested for promotion to the league, 2/3 are from East Sussex, But I highly doubt it and I wouldn't blame them.

The deadline's December 31st.
The only side who have any chance with current facilities in the Surrey Elite are Old Farnboronians in my opinion. They applied to join the CCL when they were in the Aldershot Senior League but it was refused by the FA as it was a two step jump and the application was in too late. Now they're in the Surrey Elite all they need is a top five finish (they're currently fourth) and they should be able to go up. I assume they still want to.
It's been mentioned on here that Yateley Green want to go up and Coulsdon Town were keen to return after their forced relegation but the FA's clampdown on gradings at step 6 means I doubt either would be able to do it until they get floodlights.

**edit**
I've just had a look at Abbey Rangers' website. They've been growing as a club and have mentioned progressing in the past. They say January 11th is the official opening of their new floodlights. I don't know if they're just training lights or full-on lights.

League rules are that the 3G pitch can only be used with the consent of both teams. I'm not sure whether anyone has refused to play on it this season. UCL rules give the league committee the right to refuse to let 3G pitches br used, so that could be a fly in the ointment. Whether the venue is currently suitable for Step Six, particularly with regards to boundaries and spectator facilities, is another matter entirely. I have not been there since the 3G pitch was installed but I suspect quite a bit of work would be required. I suspect they will not be applying this year but stranger things have happened.

Peterborough Sport Parkway have already done a lot of work in order to get their ground up to the appropriate standard and it's hard to see them finishing outside the top five so I suspect that we will see them moving up next season, which will be good news for football in Peterborough. I always find it astonishing that there are only to two clubs from Steps One to Six within ten miles of the city.
