To Wack:- And therein lies the problem. They should have had security of tenure, but a combination of misunderstandings ( trying to keep it non slanderous) between BAFC, BTFC, and the League appears to have led the League to be satisfied when perhaps they shouldn’t have been.

Of course when they got promoted to the Northern League BTFC had proper security of tenure.

With the new step 4 league being created in two seasons time. Whether the FA creates a northeastern/Yorkshire league or a Midlands league & this pushes the NPL1E northwards. If the FA promoted the top 8 NL1 teams, are there any teams that would definitely not want to be part of the new league & would rather be demoted to the NL2?
This is an example of what the NPL1E might look like. I’m promoting West Auckland this season & leaving the 2 northeastern teams in the NPL1E(i.e. not promoting them this coming season):
1) Brighouse Town
2) Cleethorpes Town
3) Consett
4) Dunston UTS
5) Frickley Athletic
6) Hebburn Town
7) Marske United
8) Morpeth Town
9) Newcastle Benfield
10) North Shields
11) Ossett United
12) Pickering Town
13) Pontefract Colleries
14) Sheffield
15) Shildon
16) Stockton Town
17) Sunderland RCA
18) Stocksbridge Park Steels
19) Tadcaster Albion
20) West Auckland Town
*I have no idea why my 8 with a bracket has produced 8)
The NCEL would’ve promoted 2 clubs by the time this league is created & there will be promotion/relegation between this & the NPL Prem. So Cleethorpes would probably not be in this league, but I’d feel sorry for them if they were!

The FA has agreed at a meeting with the SWPL(South West Peninsula League). That that league is a special case, clubs can request ‘not to go up’ based on travel & finances. So as far as I can see, only 18 step 6 champions will be promoted. With the 19th SWPL champions unlikely to be in a position to accept promotion. Then either 10 or 12 best runners up on a ppg basis, from those 18 step 6 leagues will be promoted(this depends on whether the League Committee relegates the bottom 2 teams in the 2 leagues running with 19 clubs). The FA standardised rules state that if all the runners up are promoted, then the FA will reprieve the best 2nd bottom step 5 sides on a ppg basis. So we may only be 6 resignations, demotions, folds, failing ground grading. Before we actually see this scenario happening!

I’m told that the FA’s restructure will include a step 4 league in the northeast(far north). A step 5 in the Midlands & another in the Home Counties. They’re aiming for 24 step 6 leagues, with reduced ground grading requirements at step 6. Plus the FA aren’t going to stick with the need for as many as 20 clubs per league at step 6. The SWPL will be creating another step 6 league for 2019/20. So after this that would be 4 more step 6 leagues created!

ANOTHER in the Home Counties, how many do they need down there?

If you look at the link & click in the ‘Future’ section. It gives a map of step 5 & I think the FA will create something to the west of London. This’ll mean that the southeast has 6 step 5 leagues, feeding into the 3 Isthmian step 4 leagues. I think all the step 5 leagues footprints will shrink, but mainly outside the southeast.

The SWPL is a step 6 & 7 League, that stands alone & feeds into the Western League. The Western League covers the Southwest, but mainly around the Bristol area! The SWPL covers Devon & Cornwall & it takes some clubs in that area 3 or 4 hours to drive to the Bristol area on a single carriageway. The Northern League isn’t anywhere near the same situation as the SWPL. If the FA create’s a new step 4 league & imo it’ll now only cover the Northeast, West & North Yorkshire(far northeast). What would the most extreme journey be? Looking at the current clutch of clubs, it looks like Morpeth to Frickley & that’s 130miles & 2hours 22minutes. Travelling down on motorways & that is not anywhere as extreme as say Helston(Cornwall)to say Hallen. That isn’t the worst potential journey for teams joining the Western league from Cornwall. It’s 185miles & take 3hours 15minutes just to play at step 5(the same as the NL1)!
