- The League Management Committee has agreed on start dates for the 2022/23 League Season.
These dates are based on the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup being confirmed as Saturday 6th August and the assumption that Step 6 sides will not be included in the FA Cup draws:-
Premier Division – Saturday 30th July 2022
First Division North – Saturday 6th August 2022
First Division South – Saturday 30th July 2022
Reserve League – Saturday 3rd September 2022
In order to accommodate the NLS Playoffs the final League fixtures will be scheduled to Saturday 22nd April 2023 (Premier Division) and Saturday 15th April 2023 (First Divisions).
No fixtures will be scheduled to Saturday 24th December or Saturday 31st December 2022, but there will be a full programme of minimal distance fixtures on Bank Holiday Monday 26th December (ko 11am) and Bank Holiday Monday 2nd January 2023 (ko 3pm). There will also be fixtures scheduled to Easter Monday 10th April (ko 3pm).
Finalisation of fixture lists will be done once the FA Cup and FA Vase draws are released (probably early July) and fixture schedules for leagues higher up the pyramid become available. As such it is unlikely that any Thurlow Nunn League fixtures will be released before mid-July.
It is intended that the League Challenge Cup will return for 2022/23.
