West to compete in 2021/22 FA Cup

We’re pleased to confirm that West will compete in the 2021/22 edition of the FA Cup, following a draw of Step 6 leagues made at FA headquarters.

Due to the recent restructring of the National League System, a draw was conducted to determine which eight of the 17 Step 6 leagues would be represented in the competition, by one club each.

The NWCFL First Division South was drawn as one of these leagues, and as the highest-ranked club not upwardly moved in the restructure, we have been accepted into this season’s competition.

The draws for the Extra Preliminary Round and the Preliminary Round will be released on Friday 9th July, with the Extra Preliminary Round scheduled to take place on the weekend of Saturday 7th August.

This means our league game at home to New Mills, scheduled for Saturday 7th August, will be moved. We’ll provide details of a new date for this game as soon as it is rescheduled by the NWCFL.

Go to the FA’s website for a full list of accepted clubs and round dates.
