I was told last night they are going to appeal.

I suspect it might be something to do with this:

Subject: Blyth AFC

It looks like, at least from the ENL management committee minutes that Blyth will continue their groundshare next season at Ashington. This seems totally out of order to me as they have obviously put a groundshare in place just before the end of the season to gain promotion. I would think those at Northallerton are extremely non plussed about this. I would now advise any club wanting to progress from the Wearside , northern alliance or the North Riding league that if your ground is not up to standard put a groundshare in place for the last couple of games of the season and you will be alright. Absolutely wrong IMHO

To be fair to Alnwick, I can see the issue.

They have their own ground and work hard to maintain it. Other sides in that division are picking and choosing who to ground share with. How Durham City get away with it is beyond me.

But you were quite happy for the Uni to share at west allotment and then Prudhoe make your mind up.

Its different moving to a ground where NOBODY plays. They have now shared grounds for 3 seasons I believe?? Could be wrong but will be at least 2 this season with another season at Willington, after changing back from Brandon at last minute.

A little bit different isn't it.

Not correct . There is a Sunday team plays there and also a ladies team plus Junior sides so it would have been a ground share end of

What was the reason Newcastle Uni were knocked back, Windy?

probably because its what's been stated a lot earlier in this thread.they didn't have security of tenure on a ground.delighted for birtley as I think it's the right decision.clubs applying for promotion should have their own ground compliant to the standards needed,and not shop around to play anywhere to gain promotion.

We now have it crystal clear that you cannot shop around for a suitable ground after the 31st December deadline for applications for promotion.


I think this post says it all. Hopefully clubs take notice and have everything in place for 31st of December and dont go, as the little fella says , shopping around. Makes a mockery of the whole process

I don't see the connection between Blyth AFC and any appeal to keep Alnwick Town in the Northern League. As they finished bottom then 2nd bottom placed Darlington RA would be reprieved before Alnwick Town. I do not believe Alnwick Town will make any such appeal.

There's nothing in the rules that say clubs can't groundshare, only that they can't groundshare in order to gain promotion.

I’ve heard about a few step 6 clubs appealing relegation & also Met Police crying about being placed in the Southern League. But there’s a misconception about ground share to gain promotion. If a club moves from an F graded ground(suitable for step 5) to another F graded ground. Then they haven’t broken the rules. If they move from a G graded ground(suitable for step 6) to a F graded ground. Then they have moved ground to gain promotion. Belper Utd applied for promotion from step 7 the other season. They applied halfway through the season & were groundsharing with Belper Town. Belper Town evicted them & they moved in with Borrowash Vics. Because both grounds were suitable or better than the grading requirements for step 6, they weren’t groundsharing to gain a promotion advantage & were duly promoted. You may not all agree how the F.A.’s defines it. But Blyth has done absolutely nothing wrong groundsharing with Ashington & there promotion is valid.
