Talks have begun to restructure South West football

FOLLOWING  a productive meeting with the Devon and Cornwall Football Associations, the South West Peninsula and Devon and Exeter Leagues, the Football Association has instigated talks on the restructuring of football in the South West.

A proposal under discussion would restructure football in the South West from season 2019/20. The region would have two Step 6 and three Step 7 leagues covering Devon, Cornwall and parts of Dorset and Somerset.   The FA Leagues Committee agreed the outline of the plan at a meeting earlier this month.

The County Associations and Leagues were asked to reconvene on Friday, March 23rd, having discussed the plan with their relevant committees regarding the ownership of the new leagues.

From this meeting it is hoped to confirm the planned reorganisation at The FA’s Leagues Committee meeting when it next meets on Tuesday, April 10th.
