I don't think Roffey have made any progress re lights yet. Stonehouse keep saying they'll be ready soon. Not sure about Bourton. Known floodlight issues at Washington, Billingham, Durham C, Newcastle Uni, Bedlington (and earlier at Ollerton & North Ferriby - assume fixed now?) A few SWPL clubs without lights too but I think they have another season to comply.

I assume Nelson are still having floodlight issues as they have a couple of home matches 'TBC'

Bedlington are due to resolve their issues next week

Devizes still seem to be kicking off at 2pm for home fixtures. Presume its a floodlight issue. Not sure what is the latest there.

According to the Western League website, Devizes have a 7.30 kick-off scheduled on April 23rd, and had midweek 7.30 kick-offs in October. No idea why they were/are kicking off at 2pm on Saturdays though

Presumably ground grading inspections involve 'unnecessary travel' so there will have to be extension to the 31 March deadline. Good news for some.

Infinity have tweeted they have passed the grading.
From what I’ve been told Nelson have pulled themselves together and remarkably have almost sorted the issues.
I’ve heard that Foley Meir, South Liverpool, Ilkley Town, Stockport Georgians, Droitwich Spa & Wellington Amateurs will achieve the ground grading.
Burscough have lost their F grading and will either have to groundshare or face the FA’s consequences.

Isn't Burscough's new ground due to be ready for next season? So any groundshare might be provisional.

Yes, that’s correct. But they need to secure one imminently.

Ollie Bayliss has just tweeted a missive from the Southern Comb chairman. Pretty much the same as all the other’s. The only difference is the ground grading deadline has been put back until the 31st July.

Interesting. Why would that happen if season to be null and void. Unless it's just to buy some time until a decision is made. Who knows?

Some clubs were due Ground Grading visits to stay at the level that they are currently at.
