......Yes, they both had their hands tied behind their backs and a loaded gun pushed into their backs!!

Shildon have confirmed that they are aiming for promotion.

So now its compulsory they are all for it. This just shows the FA are absolutely right making promotion the rule. Should have been done years ago, however its only been a problem in this Region

It also coincides with the creation of a 7th step 4 league, which will reduce the travelling for all clubs at that level.

A wiki site has been produced that shows which 26 sides are currently in the promotion position from step 5 on a PPG basis & its updated after every game's been played. Obviously it's still very early in the season & a lot of changes will happen before the end of the season. But I think PPG basis is the best way a determining which teams are likely to go up. Also keeping an eye on which teams are the 13th & 14th placed leagues 2nd position teams & those teams will be the unlucky ones & not promoted. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Dr ... dbox/Step5

It'a not going to be optional. The top side will be promoted at the end of the season and possibly the 2nd top as well.

Mike is correct, the FA has changed the rules & promotion is compulsory. The FA has scrapped the E Ground Grading(which was the requirement for promotion to step 4)& all clubs with an F Grading(which all step 5 clubs have)can be promoted. The clubs will have until the 31st March following promotion to achieve the D Grading. Whether clubs are promoted against there will & consider legal action against the FA, we'll have to wait and see.
With 12 of the 14 2nd placed teams also being promoted. I think it's very likely that the EBAC NL will be promoting the top 2 clubs.
I don't think the most positive Bishops fan thinks promotion is on the cards.

The NWCL have been awarded the rights from the FA to run a regionalised Div1 next season. I've been told that to make these new leagues viable, the FA will be cherry picking teams that apply from the step 7 leagues in the North West Region. Also the FA are reducing the size of all step 5/6 leagues down to 20 clubs maximum per division. There has been talk about the threat of numerous relegations from the 14 step 6 leagues. There is another new step 6 league being created in Essex/South East Anglia. The FA will be looking at laterally moving clubs to fill these new leagues, before relegating any clubs. I'm aware that Whitehaven Amateurs & Cleator Moor Celtic are keen to join the new NWCL1 North. Whether Penrith are moved across, especially if they're relegated only time will tell. http://www.hallmarksecurityleague.com/n ... hp?id=6222

Mike Amos has said that the EBAC NL top teams will legally challenge the compulsory promotion. I've listened to the NEfootballPodcast & at the very end of the podcast they had a Q&A section. It was also mentioned on here that the top teams are getting together to legally challenge the compulsory promotion. Is this just bluster or is there actually something behind all this?

Its utterly embarrasing if they do. Who exactly are the 'Top clubs' then? Unless all NL Clubs agree then it cant possibly succeeed and if it does the FA might aswell cut the NL adrift and let them play outside the pyramid including outside all FA competitions.
