The Lancashire and Cheshire AFL has had a very busy time in the lockdown preparing for the new season involving a lot of hard work by the league committee and clubs, and we are delighted to welcome new clubs into their structure for when the new season gets into action.
The league has had a tremendous response from new clubs with 20 prospective clubs applying and 10 of them will be joining, fielding a total of 12 new teams.
With some of the existing clubs also increasing their number of teams, the league now has 94 teams looking to get into action.
With the season likely to be shorter than normal the league will now extend to eight divisions with new clubs hopefully being placed into divisions that match their playing ability and ambition.
Most of the divisions will comprise 12 teams with several existing teams moving into higher divisions including AFC Oldham, Manchester Polonia and Radclyffe looking to enjoy life in the Premier division.
There has been plenty of action on the field in pre-season friendlies including the new teams with everyone eager to get the new season underway.
