Please do post your constitution of you have it. George & Dragon had a team in the Salisbury Sunday League last season playing home matches at Bishopdown Rec. There is also one Wiltshire team in the City of Southampton Sunday League, RS Nomansland, where I saw my last game on 15th March.
Nomansland used to have a Saturday team in the Southampton Sat FL too. Also we have a team called Shield who used to play at Nomansland. Athletico Romsey who joined the Hants PL after winning the SFL Prem had a reserve team that used Whiteparish which is also in Wiltshire until all their 3 teams sadly folded.
Hope this pastes ok if you cant read it properly let me know and I will adapt it.

ln the Sheffield and Hallam FA area there's currently the County League and the Central Midlands Divisions providing Step 7 football. Although the C Mids league has had a good reputation it may be facing radical change.

I am guessing that the Sheffield and Hallam County FA area will be split into two Step 7 leagues with the Doncaster Senior League becoming the second such league. Clubs to be split up on a geographical basis.

I suspect that the C Mids league will lose all of its' clubs which are based in the Sheffield and Hallamshire FA area to these two local Step 7 leagues.

A knock-on effect of the above might be that the Notts, Lincs and Derbs County FA's will be providing Step 7 leagues for the remaining C Mids League clubs. It may be that the C Mids will be reduced in area so that it forms one of these leagues?

Guessing ,again, I can see two Step 7 leagues in Notts (i.e. north and south). Derbs to have its' own Step 7 league.

Further south I can see the Gloucestershire FA area effectively merged with Herefordshire and southern Worcestershire to come up with two Step 7 leagues i.e. north and south.
I'm mainly going on where the Step 7 clubs are located but I'd generally agree.

If you were to change the 4 - Sheffield & Hallamshire, Central Midlands North, Central Midlands South, Nottinghamshire League into 5, you could reduce travelling.
Basing the 5 leagues around Sheffield & Hallamshire, Doncaster, North Notts & Chesterfield, Notts , Derbyshire (Central Midlands)

You could add a League to cover North Gloucestershire, Southern Herefordshire & Southern Worcestershire. There are 7 clubs North of Berkeley in the Gloucestershire County League + Droitwich Spa + Bromyard Town add some interested teams from Hereforshire, Hellenic 2 West & Gloucestershire Northern Senior.

It's also make sense for the two West Yorkshire Leagues to cover different areas, perhaps East / West (Leeds / Bradford)

Sorry paulh66, this is probably a better place for asking my question this morning.

Berkhamsted Raiders CFCSpartan South Midlands League
Codicote FCSpartan South Midlands League

In addition to these 2, I'd expect Pitstone & Ivinghoe as well as Berkhamsted Comrades to apply this season.

Be interesting to see how many other clubs are added to the list that is released in January 2020, as well as clubs on the 2019/20 that remove their application.

Do you have a link to that list? I don't remember the FA releasing the full list in January for some reason, although some step 6 leagues did publicise who'd applied in their neck of the woods.

Ah thanks, I remember that now, although it wasn't an official listing or the final listing, but I think that was as close as we got to a definitive list.

There were 5 additions to that list later released by the FA who got missed off the original

South Liverpool, Penryn Athletic and Sileby Town were three from memory. Oh....and Tipon Town
Can't remember who the fifth one was.

Yes I too pieced together a few omissions from that draft/unofficial list at the time. Unlike the previous couple of seasons, though, I don't believe the FA publicly released a list last season.

I kept a record on my spreadsheet. I’ve transferred this to this season’s edition. PPG Document
You can remove Gainsborough Trinity Reserves as they have folded.

Hykeham Town as you have stated been absorbed into Lincon United. Whether Lincoln United Development are a direct descendant to Hykeham Town in the FA's eyes I don't know.

Think you can safely remove Renishaw Rangers. The current Renishaw are a different club!

Also the Shropshire County League (or whatever nonsense name it has) - CAN promote to Step 6 from this season.

London Samurai Rovers are shown as passed ground grading, but are playing (most of?) their home games at Spikes Bridge Park, Southall this season having shared with Northwood last season. So it's probably a 'don't know' for grading at present.

London Samurai have indeed moved to Spikes Bridge permanently, which is just a 3G cage, so they can be crossed off.

Berks County in the Thames Valley were playing at a 3G cage when they applied last season, but this year are groundsharing at Step 5 Binfield, so they'll be OK.

New River Athletic seem to have disappeared completely from the Herts Senior League so looks like they can be crossed off too.

Thanks all. That is very helpful. I’ve updated the document with what we know so far. Of course some of those who applied last season may withdraw their applications; and we will likely see new applicants too.

Great work Peter. One point though. There are only 17 teams in the Spartan South Midlands Division 1 not 18. Maximum relegation would therefore be 8 not 9.

London Samurai Rovers appear to have moved / temporarily relocated to Wasps RUFC's training ground in Acton, according to their fixtures on Mitoo. Never been there so I don't know if a suitable ground grading could be achieved.

Sorry, that's my editing error. Season started with 17 so still at risk of two sides being relegated.

Some of the comments don't make sense for the team list on the step 6 applicants. Saying Montpellier Villa are at Kings Langley (looks like old comments in the box).

Sorted. Think it was just that one that was wrong?
