Promotion to and from St Piran


Recommended Posts

The FA have now issued the procedure to be followed and the documentation to be completed by any clubs seeking promotion to Step 6 for 2021/22 and these have been forwarded to all member clubs.  This process is managed entirely by the FA and all applications have to be lodged with them by 31st December.  Clubs that applied last season will have their applications carried over unless they choose otherwise.

In tandem with this I have sent the the secretaries of the ECPL and Combination Leagues the procedure to be followed by any clubs seeking promotion to the St Piran League with a request that they forward it on to their membership.  The deadline for applications is again 31st December.  Any clubs seeking promotion to St Piran that have any questions should contact me in the first instance: stpiransec@hotmail.com/07971380404/01736 762612.

Excuse my ignorance but when ( not really an if is it ) Mount Gold win the ECPL what division of what league do they go into ?

As a Devon based club they are not eligible for promotion to St Piran and their only avenue would be to apply to The Devon League.  I don't believe that the ECPL is a nominated feeder league for the Devon League so that process wouldn't be as straightforward as a standard promotion application.

With the deadline for promotion applications now passed I can confirm that the following have applied:

To the SWPL

Penryn Athletic (confirmed as carried forward from last season)

Hayle (confirmed as carried forward from last season)

Bude Town

To St Piran East

St Dominick

St Stephen

To St Piran West

Hayle Reserves (subject to the first team gaining promotion)

Ludgvan

Ruan Minor

All are subject to the season completing.  However, should that not be the case the vacancies in both divisions can be filled by election and the applicants will be given the opportunity to convert their promotion applications into applications to fill a vacancy.

With restrictions looking likely to be increase, what happens in the event that the season is yet again voided?

I would have thought a precedent has been set by last season? Difference is the league was voided end of March last year....fingers crossed everyone is back playing February/March this year and can finish their leagues?? 🤷‍♂️

There are a number of variables in that scenario.

Will the FA carry out the final part of the NLS restructure held over from last season?

If they do how many SWPL clubs will move up from each division?  It could be two from each division.

If clubs move up from the SWPL under the reorganisation will they backfill from St Piran or run with fewer teams per division?

All of the above would tell us how many vacancies there would be in St Piran for 21-22 over and above the 3 that we currently have.

If the season's voided St Piran vacancies could be filled by election and the promotion applicants would be the prime candidates to do so.

Apologies I meant going up to Step 6.

Neither floodlights nor a seated stand are requirements for promotion to Step 6 but any necessary planning, funding applications, business plan and 3 quotes have to be in place by 31st March in the year of application.

Thanks. And to fill a St Pirans vacancy?

Vacancies in St Piran League - and those Leagues below - can only be filled by election at an AGM: there are no regulations relating to finishing positions of those applying but achieving the ground grading standard is still applicable.
