Interesting article from She Kicks::
The deadline for County League teams applying to join a Regional League via the new promotion pool system is March 31st.
The promotion pool is a new concept in the Women’s Football Pyramid designed to give teams the chance to enter a Regional League without necessarily winning their County League or finishing as runner up.
Teams that have been in the County League for at least the current season can apply to join the League by submitting a Promotion Pool application form.
These applications will be reviewed by a Joint Liaison Committee made up of equal numbers of representatives from the County Leagues and Regional Leagues.
If vacancies exist in the League, the applications will be prioritised by the finishing position of the applying team at the end of the season, and other criteria as directed by The FA Women’s Committee. It is the general principle that the team who won the top division of a County League should receive an automatic place to be promoted, if they wish to accept promotion and meet any other requirements applicable at the time.
After considering the applications, the Joint Liaison Committee will make the recommendations to the Women’s Football Project Team, a Sub-Committee of The FA Women’s Committee, who will make the final decision.
A New Team Fact Sheet has been made available to help County Leagues clubs make up their own mind about whether they would like to play in the Regional Leagues next season.http://www.shekicks.net/news/view/9399
