Yet to play a game Can't Post or Reply Privately

I've been keeping an eye on the Step 7 and below leagues around the North West and a number of teams still haven't played a game. Admittedly some leagues are only a couple of weeks in, but seems a bit late to have not started yet:

Liverpool County Div1 - BRNESC

Staffordshire Div 1 - Keele University [do they wait till Students are settled in?]
Staffordshire Div 2 - Keele University Reserves [as above]

North Lancs Prem - TIC Dynamos of Middleton & Ovedrton
North Lancs Div 1 - Carnforth Rangers Reserves, Grange, Ingleton Reserves
North Lancs Div 2 - Halton Rangers, Coniston Reserves
North Lancs Div 3 - Arnside Reserves, Boys Club Reserves, Galgate Reserves, Storeys Reserves, TIC Dynamos of Middleton & Overton Reserves

Chester&Wirral Prem - Helsby
Chester&Wirral Div 1 - New Ferry Rangers

Craven Div 1 - Cononley Sports
Craven Div 2 - Oxenhope Recreation
Craven Div 3 - Salts Reserves

East Lancs Div 2 - Barnoldswick Town (EL)

Warrington Div 2 - Wellngton

Lancs Amateur Div 3 - Hesketh Casusals Reserves, Rochdale St Clements A, Oldham Hulmeians [note O.H. dropped down late to Div 3 from Premier and did KO on Sat but their match was abandoned]
Lancs Amateur Div 4 - Lymm Reserves, Thornleigh A
Lancs Amateur Div 5 - Old Boltonians B, Rochdale St Clements B

Lancs & Cheshire Div A - AFC Oldham 2005 2nds
Lancs & Cheshire Div C and D - Most of the teams have not KOd off yet

I've never taken much notice of when the teams at this level get started, if not at the same time as most leagues... is it normal to have so many teams (I counted 44 in the North West) not yet even underway half way through Sept?

Helsby have played a league cup game, though, and Altrincham reserves are expecting them to turn up for a Cheshire Amateur Cup game tomorrow, which was postponed in last week's downpours. Speculation, but I suppose they were sorting themselves out after their withdrawal from the West Cheshire League.

Some more jaundiced observers from B9 might maintain that 'Arry's finest have turned up on the pitch on several occasions, but following Gianfranco's methods, have yet to "play a game"

To update some of these after today:

Liverpool County Div1 - BRNESC
Staffordshire Div 1 - Keele University

--> Both still not started, but have scheduled games on Sat 23 Sept

Staffordshire Div 2 - Keele University Reserves

--> First game scheduled for Mon 25 Sept

Chester&Wirral Prem - Helsby

--> They are scheduled to get league games underway Sat 23 Sept

Chester&Wirral Div 1 - New Ferry Rangers

--> FA Full Time has no fixtures listed so seems like they are not playing?

Warrington Div 2 - Wellington

--> Would appear to have withdrawn as Daten got a cup walkover against them this weekend

Furness 2 - Coniston Reserves

--> FA Full Time has no fixtures listed so seems like they are not playing?

Craven Div 3 - Salts Reserves

--> Scheduled to start Sat 23 Sept but previous fixtures had been both cancelled and postponed so hopefully they are actually starting

Lancs Amateur Div 4 - Thornleigh A

--> Their game today was postponed, presumably due to weather

Lancs & Cheshire Div A - AFC Oldham 2005 2nds

--> Scheduled to start Sat 23 Sept

Lancs & Cheshire Div C - Chorltonians Athletic and Radclyffe were scheduled in the cup today, while Stoctonians 3rds are due to start Sat 23 Sept.

All the other teams listed have now started their league season
