The allocations for next season have been made. It is almost the same apart from the fact Blackfield & Langley have resigned & gone back to the Wessex League. So the league run with only 21 clubs. All the other clubs from last season as no promotion/relegation or swaps with other leagues. So the other 20 clubs are, Beaconsfield Town, Chesham United, Dorchester Town, Farnborough, Gosport Borough, Hartley Wintney, Hayes & Yeading United, Hendon, Merthyr Town, Metropolitan Police, Salisbury, Swindon Supermarine, Taunton Town, Tiverton Town, Truro City, Walton Casuals, Weston-Super-Mare, Wimborne Town & Yate Town.
With 2 less midweek fixtures let's hope Truro away can be on a Saturday for once!

The FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round is apperently scheduled to take place on Tuesday 22nd September. Not sure of other dates for this. No idea about FA Trophy,like the FA Vase still uncompleted from last season, but not as yet cancelled. Also there will be no replays in the FA Cup at all next season, with all ties completed in one match, with extra time & penalties if necessary.
I see the League season is due to begin on Sat 19th September subject to spectators being allowed into the grounds. As mentioned before with the 1st qualifying round of the FA Cup on Tuesday 22nd September. COYD.

For the FA Cup preliminary round 15 clubs from Step 3 are required to take part. Normally this would be decided on previous season's league position. But last season's null & void means 15 clubs out of 109 will be chosen at random. So it could be us! Hope not of course, but if it is, Saturday 12th September is the current scheduled date when we might have to play a competitive match again.
