The South-West Peninsula League have submitted a draft proposal to clubs for a possible cup competition to finish the curtailed season with some competitive football. 
In the wake of another league campaign being cut short by the Covid crisis, the SWPL have devised potential tournaments for the likes of Honiton Town and Axminster Town, which would include a group contest and a knockout cup. 
The format would ensure each team plays at least five games, with a minimum of two being at home and based on a regional system to minimise travel times. 
The SWPL have scheduled a board meeting for March 10, with clubs asked to respond to the proposal by March 8. 
The FA are still waiting from a ruling from the Government about conditions of play between March 29 and May 17, such as limits on crowds and household mixing, which could impact the proposals.
