cornishteddyboy Posted May 8, 2019 Report Share Posted May 8, 2019 Strategy for determining the Membership of the LWC Combination League for 2019/20 Season. 1. There will be no compulsory relegation from the League at the conclusion of the current season. 2. All Combination League Clubs which are not successful in their bid for promotion to Step 7 will be assured of a place in the Combination League for the 2019/20 season, along with those which opted not to apply for promotion. In addition, any Club currently a member of the SWP Div.1 West which seeks voluntary relegation from that League, will also be assured of a place in the Combination League. 3. Once the final numbers in the League are determined as above, additional teams, up to a maximum of 16, will be selected using the following priorities: Priority A. TWO Clubs from the Trelawny League which finish in a promotion position as specified in our Rules. Priority B. ANY Clubs playing in the East Cornwall League which opt to make a side-ways move providing their geographical location does not cause excessive travel for visiting Teams. Priority C. ANY Club from the Trelawny League Premier Division who wish to join the Combination League but did not finish in an automatic promotion position. In addition, ANY Club from the Duchy League Premier Division, providing their geographical location does not cause excessive travel for visiting teams. Average points per game will be used to determine successful applicants. While the Combination League are proud of the fact that they have helped and encouraged Clubs to improve their facilities over the years by imposing minimum Ground Grading standards, the FA’s re-structuring and the creation of the St Piran League has created a problem, in that the minimum standards for entry to Step 7 are not as high as the current Combination League criteria! With this in mind, there is no longer a necessity for Clubs to meet any Ground Grading standards other than the following: - a) The pitch must comply with the FA minimum size and be roped off to deter spectator access to the playing area. b) The Home Club must provide adequate changing, shower and toilet facilities for Match Official and Players. CLUBS CURRENTLY PLAYING IN THE TRELAWNY WHICH HAVE ALREADY EXPRESSED AN INTEREST IN JOINING THE COMBINATION LEAGUE NEXT SEASON ARE NOW ASKED TO CONFIRM THEIR APPLICATION BY CONTACTING LESTER THOMAS BEFORE 15TH MAY. 01209 219239 or firstname.lastname@example.org In light of the statement from the St Piran League, the Cornwall Combination has extended the date for applications to join it.
