The 2022/23 season is upon us like that moment in classic Championship Manager games where it stops for a moment to load the new season.
With that in mind, key dates are emerging about when we’ll know further key dates, including when the FA Cup, FA Trophy and FA Vase entries will be announced and when the draws should be released.
Non-League football interrogator Ollie Bayliss at BBC Three Counties Radio has got the jump on most of us as usual, revealing when all that information will be out.
Bayliss writes on Twitter: “The FA is expected to publish a list of which clubs have been accepted for the FA Cup, FA Trophy and FA Vase on Friday 1st July. The draws for the early rounds of the competitions will be published on Friday 8th July.”
That means we’ll all be back at it very shortly. In the meantime all the Berkshire pre-season friendlies are here.
