This was disclosed by the FA at the latest Wembley meeting :
Northern and Southern Divisions of Nine reserve teams each will be the format for the new FA WSL Development League.
Why 9 each : because there are 18 WSL teams from next season. I am very curious to see if the overall level will be better than the previous reserves season and what age group will be represented ie post COE 17-18-19 years old or older players looking for a FA WSL chance? Obviously the development league is part of the game changer plan.
The Development League will kick-off on the 6th of October .
Northern Division – Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Doncaster Rovers Belles, Durham, Everton, Lincoln / Notts County, Liverpool, Manchester City, Sunderland
Southern Division – Arsenal, Bristol Academy, Chelsea, London Bees , Millwall Lionesses, Oxford United, Reading, Watford, Yeovil Town
There will be 3 groups of 6 for the League Cup competition :
Arsenal Chelsea London Bees Millwall Watford
Doncaster Durham Everton Liverpool Man City Sunderland
Villa Birmingham Bristol Notts County Oxford
