Please find attached all of the necessary documentation for the Step 7 to 6 Promotion Application process.
As in previous seasons, The Football Association will manage the promotion process for all clubs seeking promotion from Step 7 to Step 6 of the National League System. The ONLY EXCEPTION will be in cases where Step 6 competitions have Step 7 divisions as part of their Constitution. Promotion in such cases will be in accordance with the Rules of that particular competition.
You may note that the Application Form itself is now an editable PDF. We have decided to make this change in order to make life easier for the clubs as they can save their entries and edit this from season to season, changing only the items where a variation exists.
We would appreciate it if you could forward this to your member clubs as soon as you are able, and to explicitly highlight that all items have to be submitted by the 31 December deadline. The cheque payment is also due by this date and it should have the Club’s name written on the back if from a personal/unrecognisable account.
All promotion applications and/or queries, along with the supporting documents, should be sent to promotions@TheFA.com
Further Draws have been made in the Dorset Senior Trophy & Somerset Senior Cup Competitions
A new era is about to begin at the County Ground as the ground undergoes a major redevelopment to turn the existing grass pitch into a state of the art 3G stadia complex.
Following a successful application by Dorset FA to the Football Foundation for funding, construction work on the new 3G stadia complex began the week commencing 23rd May 2016. With the facility due to be completed by the start of the 2016-17 season this is an exciting time for the ground and for the local community.
The Dorset County Football Association took over the lease of the County Ground on 1st April 1989. Following extensive building work to the old school building to make it into a two storey building The Dorset Football Association head quarters were officially opened on 3rd August 1991. The County Ground now serves as a focal point for football development in Dorset.
With the opening of the new facility will come opportunities for community and club engagement, with the County FA providing on site opportunities for coaches, referees, officials and players to take part in development programmes.
In addition to the community provision Hamworthy United FC will continue to sub lease the pitch at the County Ground from the County FA.
