No luck for our Step 6 clubs

By Admin ccl

Just 7 places available for the whole of Step 6 in the FA Cup

The Emirates FA Cup - Step 6 Clubs of The FA National League System - Accepted

As the Competition was oversubscribed, it has not been possible to accommodate all Clubs that submitted an application to enter. The maximum number of Clubs that can be accepted to participate in the Competition in its current format shall be 732.

Having reviewed all applications seven places were available in the Competition for Clubs at Step 6 of The FA National League System. These places have been awarded to the seven highest ranked Step 6 Clubs (that applied to enter) not promoted to Step 5, based on their points per game (PPG) from the 2022-2023 season.

For ease of reference please see the seven Step 6 Clubs to be accepted:

Brislington FC

Hartpury University FC

Liskeard Athletic FC

Okehampton Argyle FC

Stockport Town FC

Wells City FC

Wendron United FC

This means that Saturday 5August can now be confirmed as the opening date for league matches in CCL Division One when there will be a full programme, (subject to enough grounds being available, given our multitude of ground sharing situations)
