FA CUP DATES
Season to start on 4th August???
Last season the CCL season commenced on the Saturday before the Extra Prelinary Round of the FA Cup so I would not expect this season to be any different. As CCL head honcho Alan Constable said last year he wants the clubs who are in the Extra Preliminary Round to have at least one league game under their belts so they can play their way in to improving their chances of progression, given that there is money at stake.
This season the Extra Preliminary Round is on 11 August, and the Prelimnary Round a fortnight later.
The Qualifying Rounds:
First - 8 September
Second - 22 September
Third - 6 October
Fourth - 20 October.
