The Football Association Step 7 Final Structure Review.
The Football Association's much delayed Step 7 Review Final Structure Report was published yesterday and contained the news that The Bedfordshire County Football League have had their Step 7 status suspended as not only did 75% of its clubs fail to meet the revised Step 7 requirement but also their current membership falls below the agreed 14 club minimum.

However, this decision would have been based on the just finished 2010-11 season when our membership fell to just 13 clubs in The Premier Division supported by Sportsform Division due to the withdrawals during the season of Biggleswade United Reserves, Ickwell & Old Warden plus Southill Alexander.

Whilst the league have to accept this decision we believe the league for the new 2011-12 season now meets the new criteria for Step 7 in full, with our 15 teams in the top division all meeting the latest criteria.

To this effect The Bedfordshire County Football League as informed The Football Association of these facts based upon work and agreements between the League, the Clubs and the responsible authorities, and also building projects planned or underway this Summer, but until our clubs start playing friendly matches in July and August, we as a league obviously cannot be sure the work has been completed but are confident that at least 75% of our Premier Division supported by Sportsform clubs will meet the new criteria for the start of season 2011-12.

To this extent The Football Association are now expected to meet with the league to consider our classification within the National League System.

The full reports shows just two leagues, The Northern Football Alliance and The Staffordshire County Senior League have been granted Step 7 status for season 2011-12, another 16 leagues have been granted provisional Step 7 status based upon 75% of its clubs meeting the new criteria leaving the other 25% to comply fully by 31st March 2012 or those leagues will have its Step 7 status removed.

A further 15 leagues have had their Step 7 status suspended and given until 31st March 2012 for 75% or more of their clubs to achieve the grading requirement. If this is achieved within the timescale, the league would be granted provisional Step 7 status and league in question provided with a further 12 months, until 31 March 2013 to comply fully. Failure to meet either of these deadlines will result in Step 7 status being removed.

Alongside these leagues, The Oxfordshire Senior League and The Reading Football League find themselves in the same position as ourselfs,whilst eight leagues having not fully returned their grading questionnaires have also had their Step 7 status suspended.
