Step-7’s Cheshire League have been granted a two-week extension to their season to aid fixture congestion created by this season’s terrible weather.
Therefore their season now ends on Saturday 26th May – 4 weeks after many Step 5/6 leagues finish.
We have been told that the FA wants most of the non-league pyramid, especially steps 1-6 finished as early as possible because of the restructuring process taking place over the summer.
FIXTURES – The FA have approved a 2 week extension to the CFL season until 26 May 2018. #thankgoodness

Quite agree! This weekend must be in doubt for many grounds again, adding pressure on players, officials, and referees. 9 Saturdays in the CFL season, 7 in Step 4-6 Leagues.
