Following decisions made by The FA the Toolstation Western Football League will have 43 clubs in the two divisions next season, a net increase of two member clubs from Season 2012-13.
Shrewton United and Elmore will not be members next year, Shrewton United deciding to move their first team back to the Wiltshire Football League and Elmore having their wish granted by The FA to transfer to the SW Peninsula League.

The First Division will have three new members with Ashton & Backwell United gaining promotion from the Somerset County League, Chippenham Park taking the step up from the Wiltshire Football League with Wincanton from the Dorset Premier League completing the trio.

One year on since Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch, The Football Association and the British Heart Foundation have teamed up to help save lives in England's football clubs and their communities.
In a unique partnership, more than 900 defibrillators will be made available to clubs at Steps 1 to 6 of the National League System and clubs in the Women's Super League to help save the lives of cardiac arrest casualties.
The initiative will create thousands of life-savers by giving players, staff and fans access to the equipment and information needed to save a life, including hands-only CPR which was made famous for the BHF by football legend Vinnie Jones.
Clubs in the Western League can now apply for a defibrillator. The form needs to be returned to Ken Clarke by 31st May 2013. Click on the link below for an application form.
The club will be dropping down to the Wiltshire County League.
