Andover’s board has resigned & they can no longer accept promotion. It looks like they’ll be placed at step 6. So there’s all change in the NPL1E, with AFC Mansfield being promoted extra from the NCEL & Brighouse moving from the NPL1W. Yaxley & Peterborough Sports are moving to the Southern League. http://www.evostikleague.co.uk/promotio ... ffle-50622

It's a matter of time before playoffs are introduced (which IMHO go completely against the ethos of having a league system.)

Excellent news for Marske United and Morpeth Town.

I assume it’s because AFC Mansfield & Brighouse are a lot closer than Yaxley & Peterborough Sports!

From Marske to Peterborough it's 176 miles at least and another 4 or so to Yaxley. Whereas to Mansfield it's 121 miles and Brighouse 91 miles. A saving of 140 miles in travelling altogether. More so for Morpeth. Just by changing 2 teams In the League.

:oops: Forgot about coming back!! Double that figure to 280 miles saved in travelling for the change of teams in the League. Think of the fuel cost saving alone never mind the hours travelling saved for the club, players and fans. That's how it's excellent news.

The 8th step 4 should take all the sides south of the Humber out of it, Mike Amos' vision basically.

This is the rules & regs for next season. For relegation from step 5, promotion from step 6 & relegation from step 6.
The Clubs in the bottom two places in each of the fourteen divisions at Step 5 at the end of the Regular Season will be relegated and placed in the most geographically appropriate division at Step 6. These Clubs will be replaced by the nineteen Clubs finishing in first position in each of the Leagues at Step 6 at the end of the Regular Season together with the required number of Clubs finishing in second position at the end of the Regular Season on a points per match ratio. If there are insufficient Clubs to fill vacancies Clubs finishing second to bottom of the Step 5 divisions will be reprieved so that the best such Club shall be reprieved first.

Step 6 and 7

At the end of the Regular Playing Season the Clubs in the bottom two positions of each of the nineteen Step 6 divisions will be liable to relegation.

Barking...so the Premier League can manage to relegate 3 clubs from their 20 club division, but not Northern League Division 1!

The F.A. are rationalising the leagues at step 5 & 6. Prior to this season, you had 4 relegations from the Hellenic Prem(step 5) & zero from the Essex Senior(step 5). That’s why the FA created 2 more step 6 leagues. You had a situation where you could promote a team straight from step 7, into the Essex Senior & this was because there was no step 6 league in that area. The East Midlands Counties, Midlands League & the West Midlands Regional(all step 6). All promoted a single club only & the Hellenic had 4 promotion places. So promotion has been equalised by the FA for steps 1 to 7.

Yes, I appreciate the restructure going on, the nature of pooling clubs and the overall broad aims (if seemingly benefiting the Isthmian set up more than any other), but it does seem strange that the opportunities for progression within long established leagues is being reduced.

Rationalising = Cutting
To Ration is To Cut.
Long words are used to confuse and deceive. Shorter words are straight to the point.

I agree, the Isthmian & southeast has benefitted from the restructuring. Maybe it’s because Nick Robinson(Isthmian League) is on the FA league committee & the restructuring was his baby. If anyone thinks the NPL1E is going to get better the season after next, then they are deluded. Also the FA seems stuck on promoting teams using the ppg basis. If the 8th step 4 league is created in 2 seasons time(which has been mooted). Then promoting an extra 20 clubs at step 5 using ppg basis, will not help the northeastern clubs! 9 of the 14 step 5 leagues are in the south. Hopefully the FA will look at promoting a large chunk of the NL(8 clubs in my opinion).

It would help them as at least 2 more of their clubs would go up as an immediate result of the restructure and the boundary would rise further north. I agree that the way it's been done currently has been bizarre, why does the Isthmian have 3 divisions?

And don't get me started on the step 2-3 farce.
