I don't know typical ref, only sees half of what's going on <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

There has been several threads discussing this very point. If you can't find them ask me at Shrewsbury <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

As per the e-mail I received from the Football League, the only requirements to qualify for the LDV appear to be a 4000 capacity and 500 seats - precisely the eligibility for the Conference. So effectively any side playing in the Conference is eligible for the LDV.

Think that was the reason they missed out - they had demolished their ground, and since Dover wasnt their own ground, they were stopped from entering the competition.

The eligibility criteria also seem to have been eased since they were stopped from entering anyway.

As hoagy has pointed out on confguide, Westley seems to think it's the top eight clubs for some reason...

Look here

Was certainly top 12 last season - think it was 8 the year before, so I guess they could revert, and the FL Website only gives the comment "Conference clubs by invitation", so theres no absolute confirmation of numbers there.

They will simply alter the number of byes in Round 1 depending on how many Conference clubs are invited to take part - 12 means 60 clubs in the LDV, so 4 byes in Round 1 and 28 matches, giving 32 sides in round 2 while 8 conference sides means 56 sides in total and 8 byes in round 1.

Wouldn't it make more sense for the FL to allow entry to the top 16 clubs in the conference that meet the required criteria?

Seems silly having byes - are the FL clubs scared of facing the Fleet?!?!?

If we do qualify, does it generate any sponsorship money from LDV?

The current position is outlined here on Confguide.

So much more reliable than Mr Westley
