The Annual Fixtures Meeting took place on 18th September. Two new clubs have joined the League - welcome to Eccles and Glossop. There is also one returning club, Altrincham, who had no venue last season.

The number of teams is back to pre-pandemic levels, but with an unprecedented 9 of these in the Limit League, there are still not quite enough teams to justify having three divisions in the main league.

It may be a while before league fixtures are produced, as we need to fit our fixtures around those of the Manchester League, which haven't yet been published. In the meantime, you can see the formation of divisions on the Cross Tables page, and the Cup draws on the Cup Fixtures page.
