NWCFL confirm schedule for league fixture announcements

With the league season fast approaching, the North West Counties Football League have today (6 July) confirmed their schedule for the announcement of league fixtures. With the first two rounds of the FA Cup and FA Vase due to be drawn on Friday, West – and other Hallmark Security league clubs – will have their provisional August fixture list available within the next week.

In an official statement on the Hallmark Security League website, fixture secretary John Reid said:

On Friday 7th July, the FA will release the draws for the early rounds in the FA Cup and FA Vase, and from there the League’s fixture scheduling can begin.

It is necessary to wait for the release of the FA competitions fixtures to identify those clubs exempt in certain rounds, and also to slot in the FA Cup and FA Vase fixtures alongside league fixtures, to avoid clubs playing each other twice in two weeks.

The League fixtures for the whole of August only will be issued during next week.

The target date for issuing the remaining League fixtures from September onwards is Friday 21st July.
