Provisional Wiltshire Senior League constitution announced

Saturday 08 June 2019 - by Stuart Smedley (Updated on 09 June 2019 at 13:17)

The draft constitution for the 2019-20 Wiltshire Senior League was published this week, with the likely opponents announced for Royal Wootton Bassett Town's Development and Under 18 Floodlit League teams.

Development team

Development team joint managers Steve Chadwick and Andy Mullen, who took over the reins partway through last season, will be hoping to improve on their eleventh-place finish in the Wiltshire Senior League Premier Division last season.

The competition will again comprise sixteen teams, with the Development side set to face three new opponents.

Joining the competition are Frome Collegians, Holt and Stratton Juniors. They replace Football ID and Devizes Town Reserves, both of who were relegated, with a third vacancy having been available after Westbury United Reserves withdrew from the Wiltshire League towards the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

Both Frome and Holt have been promoted after title winning seasons. The former finished top of the Mid Somerset League Premier Division for the second season in a row, while the latter were champions of the Trowbridge and District League. Meanwhile, Stratton, who lifted the Wiltshire Junior Cup in 2018-19, earned promotion by virtue of finishing runners-up in the Swindon and District League.

The full provisional constitution for the 2019-20 Wiltshire League Premier Division is as follows:

Corsham Town Reserves
Cricklade Town
Frome Collegians
Kintbury Rangers
Ludgershall Sports
Malmesbury Victoria Development
Marlborough Town
Melksham Town Reserves
Pewsey Vale Development
Royal Wootton Bassett Town Development
Shrewton United
Stratton Juniors
Trowbridge Town

Under 18 Senior team

Royal Wootton Bassett Town are set to again run a team in the Under 18 Floodlit League, having last done so in the 2016-17 season. The team is set to be managed Shane Saunders, who oversaw the Under 16 Blue youth side last year.

Twelve teams are currently set to run in the Floodlit League, which Bassett won in 2010-11 before finishing as champions of the League's North Division in 2015-16.

The proposed constitution for the league is as follows:

Calne Town
Chippenham Town
FC Chippenham Youth
Marlborough College
Melksham Town
New College Swindon
Pewsey Vale
Radstock Town
Royal Wootton Bassett Town
