Vauxhall Motors look set to finally be promoted to the North West Counties League Premier Division after a three year wait.

On Monday, the FA’s Alliance & Leagues committee recommended that the non-league restructuring, scheduled for last summer, takes place ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Under the proposal, which requires FA Council approval at the end of next week, 110 clubs across the country will be upwardly moved. Results from the “null and void” campaign of 2019/20 and the “curtailed” 2020/21 season will be used to rank clubs.

Division One South club Vauxhall have topped the table in their last two seasons and were only denied promotion last year when Coronavirus voided their season, but today's decision looks to have finally brought them the promotion that they deserve.

The news will be welcomed by frustrated Motors boss Mick McGraa, who can now finally start to enjoy and plan for their new surroundings.

Club vice-chairman Alan Bartlam said: “I'm absolutely delighted. We knew the FA were considering the situation but until now, it has been nothing more than that. 

"This is fantastic news for the club.”
