Following the suspension of the talks between the Lancashire League and the Ribblesdale League it is now necessary to postpone the revamp of the Lancashire Knockout Cup until the 2020 season.
Next season the competition format will be as follows:
54 teams in total.
LL,NL,LC,GMCL,BCL,RL, and PS top 7 will qualify for next year's competition along with the top 2 from the S&D and GMAL and 1 from the WL.
The winners and runners up of the LL,NL,LC,GMCL,and BCL will be seeded totaling 10 teams, the remaining 44 clubs will play a preliminary round to reduce down to 22. The first round proper will then consist of 32 teams reducing to the final 2 to compete in the final.
We will discuss further at the next recreation meeting, in the meantime I would be grateful if you could notify your clubs.
