Welcome to the Northern League. Do we know for certain if Esh Winning are relegated? Could Redcar get promoted too?
I dont think they can Interpol, last year they appealled when we went up and lost out on it. To be honest with the team they had this season I and I suspect plenty of others fully expected them to come up, but fair play to Jarrow they've kept a squad together and worked on that and its paid off.
The pitch is superb, a little small if I remember the last time I played there but the surface is lovely and well looked after.
Good luck to Jarrow FC.
Last season the FA had a moratorium on promotion from step 7. This included allowing 2 teams to be promoted from step 7 leagues that were happy to allow 2 teams to be promoted. The NWCL were tapping up Whitehaven so they'd apply as the 2nd club to be promoted from the Wearside League. Redcar Athletic were made aware and contacted the EBAC NL & Mike Amos wrote a bit about there plight on his blog. So Redcar applied to be promoted as the 2nd club and the FA couldn't promote Whitehaven in front of the 2nd placed team. The big problem was that there wasn't room for them in the NL & the committee wouldn't expand the league to 23 teams. The FA could've laterally moved a team to allow them to be promoted, but decided against it. The basis of the clubs appeal was numerous step 7 leagues were promoting 2 clubs, so why should they be victimised because of there location in the country(Melton Town for instance were allowed to be promoted to the United Counties League, instead of the more natural placement of the East Midlands Counties League). I know the moratorium isn't in effect this season, but there is now space in the EBAC NL. If anyone with any influence in the NL reads this forum, then they should be on the phone to the FA & saying that both the NL & FALC owe Redcar & should morally promote them as an extra club from the Wearside League this season. If the FA's restructuring comes into full effect, the Wearside League will be reduced to a maximum of 18 clubs by season 2018/19. So no one would be effected by promoting Redcar Athletic in my opinion.
