A proposal has been put forward for a shake-up to step 7 football in Sussex

Following an FA Council meeting at Wembley yesterday, proposals have been put in place to have both East and West Divisions for what is currently Southern Combination League Division 2.

Should the new structure take shape, the Southern Combination League would provide the West Division, while an East Division would would fall into the hands of the Mid Sussex League.

The next step is now consultation with the relevant league and committees.

SCFL chairman Steve Nealgrove said: "We are fully aware of the proposal by The FA Leagues Committee and will be giving our response to the plans in due course."
