Today sees the start of the 2021-22 season, an occasion that has been a long time coming and has seen a great deal of planning, contingency planning and maybe one or two small headaches along the way - but here we are!
All three divisions get under way today, we have a couple of clubs with a bye today due to the structures of the divisions, however our plan is to get a front heavy start and to give this season every chance of being completed. We are also planning for contingency, after the last couple of seasons, nothing can be taken for granted but we have looked at many potential scenarios and we are hopeful that this season will be an exciting occasion and that come April, we will have a defined outcome for all three divisions.
We encourage all clubs to keep on top of their administration, to make every effort to keep their players and volunteers safe and to work with their peers and the league to work out any issues or problems that may arise going forwards.
We would like to thank everyone for their efforts in getting ready for the new campaign but also to wish everyone well for a competitive and successful season. We look forward to welcoming back fans to grounds and you have certainly been missed. Please make sure you follow clubs local instructions for staying safe and to aid their matchday management regime.
Good luck to everyone, stay safe and here's to a successful 2021-22 season.
