Step 7 to 6 Promotion Application process

Dear Colleagues,

Please find attached all of the necessary documentation for the Step 7 to 6 Promotion Application process.

Slightly different to previous seasons, The Football Association will manage the whole promotion process for all clubs seeking promotion from Step 7 to Step 6 of the National League System. Therefore, Clubs playing in any Step 7 division now have to apply through The FA.

We would appreciate it if you could forward this to your member clubs as soon as you are able, and to explicitly highlight that all items have to be submitted by the 31 December deadline. The cheque payment is also due by this date and it should have the Club’s name written on the back if from a personal/unrecognisable account.

All promotion applications and/or queries, along with the supporting documents, should be sent to

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Kind regards


If there are any ESBFL Clubs who wish to apply the required forms are obtainable from Brian Reed, Treasurer, ESBFL
