What is the significance of step 7 7A 7B ?
They're all the same level and able to promote to step 6 so I don't know why the FA are sub-dividing it.
The criteria may have changed slightly but this is what it was when it started:
"With regard to the membership within each level, the following will apply:
Step 7 – Minimum of 16 clubs
Step 7A – Minimum of 14 Clubs
Step 7B – Minimum of 12 Clubs
In order for a league to qualify to be placed at each level the following minimum % of clubs MUST comply fully with the new Grade I.
Step 7 – Minimum 75% achieving Grade I
Step 7A – Minimum 50% achieving Grade I
Step 7B – Minimum 25% achieving Grade I
At Step 7 there will be a maximum of 25% of member clubs as classified as reserve sides of teams playing at a higher level in the National League System.
There will be no restrictions with regard to the number of reserve teams playing in leagues classified as Step 7A or Step 7B."
