The proposals, albeit in their infancy, are approved in principle and subject to further discussions there will be a further announcement towards the end of November.
Commenting for Manchester FA, Chief Executive, Colin Bridgford said: "This is a wonderful opportunity to look at the vision for the future and engage community clubs to be a solid base for the women's game in years to come. The initial challenges during the transitional period, i.e the first few years will be no doubt be difficult, but equally in years to come will be most rewarding. I am delighted that all parties agreed unanimously to move forward and create independent of each other a County Women's League."
Maureen Dunford, Cheshire FA Chief Executive, commented: "There is a lot of good will around the Executive Group to see this vision succeed. Cheshire FA are delighted to be working together with Manchester FA and the officials of the Cheshire and Manchester Women's League to acknowledge the need to make a change and move forward."
On behalf of the Cheshire & Manchester League, secretary Jane Morley said: "We are fully aware that changes are needed to move forward with women's football at this level and it is great to see, that at grassroots level, women's football is being taken seriously by the FA and by working with the Cheshire and Manchester FAs, we are sure that the long term future of Women's football at this level will be secure."
