You keep saying this and most on here are well aware Richard, but what would you have us call the divisions that sit directly below Step 7 divisions?

A lot of the division below the officially designated Step 7 divisions are still part of a hierarchy. I.e. Anglian Combination Division One is still a level higher than Anglian Combination Division Two. And as all levels above this are called Step 1, Step 2...Step 7....then surely you must see why we call the divisions below Step 8, Step 9 etc.

Bedmond Sports were in the Herts Premier at Step 7.
They took a voluntary demotion to the 1st division.

To me, 1 below Step 7 is Step 8.
Apologies if this upsets the purists, but I'm pretty sure that almost everyone ( including the purists) knows exactly what I mean.

Headingley's twitter feed is a lot more forthcoming than the X for no publicity that comes from the West Yorkshire League.
Lots of entries from them for training etc so I'd fully expect them to be in the same league next season, at worst one division lower.

No. Anything below Step 7 is "recreational football" (FA term, not mine) and any team from that level is potentially just 1 application away from Step 7.

I'll keep on saying "Step 8 does not exist" until people stop referencing it.

I can see this one being long running


I know that Step 8 and 9 do not exist, but still the Glos Northern Senior League Division One and Two are one and two divisions down from the Gloucestershire County, and a division Two side cannot apply for County League status, while a club is generally promoted from division One

So can we call it 'not step 8' in future? Cool

The Glos FA Handbook specifically refers to three Step 8 leagues in the county - besides the GNS, the Bristol Premier Combination and the Bristol & Suburban League.

Does that change the line from "Step 8 does not exist", to "The FA does not sanction Step 8, but individual counties may"?

I quite agree with you - not official, but thinking logically they are step 8, 9 etc.

According to the Southern Combination's full time site and the club's Twitter account, Ferring are now....wait for it......Ferring Brazilian Masters Youth. It's a merger with what appears to be a local Sunday and/or U18 side apparently.

Seems to be a common theme in that area, alongside Worthing Brazilian Masters Youth.

Was discussed at the Ferring Parish Council meeting.

Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Leagues closing
The Andover & District League and Salisbury & District League (Saturday section) have merged (new league name not yet revealed [font]


This merger is no longer happening. The majority of SDFL clubs didn't want to go through with it in the end.

This is why Broughton and Kingsclere were allowed to move very late on into Hampshire League Div 1, so they had a league to play in as there were only 4 clubs willing to play in the Andover league.

CK Andover have moved to the Basingstoke League. Not sure, not that I've looked where Tidworth Town have looked to play (if they have at all)

Grappenhall Sports have withdrawn their 1st team from the Cheshire League. A tweet posted this lunchtime states:

"It is with great sadness and regret that we have to inform you that our 1st team has had to dissolve due to limited players and increasing costs.

However, with a very successful u16 team we do hope to bounce back in the near future."

Looking at the new FullTime site, on their club profile they’ve been called Solent University since 2017-18 but their team name has been Team Solent.

This one seems to crop up every year, but I don't think it's Shaftesbury Town, just Shaftesbury. Their Twitter and Facebook pages back this up, as does the Wessex League website.
