Step 5 division for 17/18?

maybe at some point in the next few years.

would they give a number of years grace for clubs to get up to the appropriate ground grading a la Essex?

It all depends on what the FA classifies as 'the East Midlands'. If they include the southern half of Lincolnshire. Then I think that they will take existing step 5 clubs from the UCL, NCEL & the MFL. I think there's about 17 clubs at step 5 already in what could be classified as the East Midlands. If they want to reduce all the league's below step 3 to 20 clubs. Then this is doable, but a bit of shunting around will have to be done.

Why would they take all the existing clubs from the step 5 leagues they play in at present. Surely it would be an opportunity for clubs in step six in the Midland League that reside in the East Midlands to progress which they find difficult at the moment with the promotion as it is to the MFL Step 5. There are clearly sides in the UCL Step 5 that would struggle to survive in the MFL step six. Look at results in the cup competitions. Any restructure needs to look at how the East Midlands teams do in their respective Step 6 divisions next season along with the infrastructure involved.
