The South-West Peninsula League has confirmed the applications from clubs looking to enter their two divisions for next season. 
Ottery St Mary top the list of local clubs looking to make the step up, and they are joined by Devon counterparts Okehampton Argyle, University of Exeter, Braunton, Newtown and Teignmouth. 
The initial list was based on the basis of current position of the 2020-21 season still being ‘active’. Any impacts on promotion applicants will be sent by the FA as and when recommendations are finalised. 
In regard to inspections, clearly at this time these are not essential and as such following lockdown legislation cannot proceed.  
However, as Leagues may already have had contact with some of the applicants and if needed, the FA do have copies of ground grading questionnaires, so preliminary assessments of ground grading and acceptance for promotion could be made.
