Conversations Still Ongoing

As tomorrow (Saturday 11th February) is a match day the Board of the Western League understand Clubs will be keen to update their supporters, coaches, players and volunteers on the proposed merger with the South West Peninsula League.

Following our statement on Monday, we can confirm that conversations between the Leagues and the Football Association have been ongoing and we remain committed to finding a solution for Clubs, particularly at Step 5, that overcomes the financial challenge of travel across the South West of England.

The Board are meeting on Sunday to consider the current situation and our options going forward. Working with partners, we hope to make a statement early next week, setting out the way forward.
