Sometimes you have to take a step back to continue moving forward. That is what we are doing to save the senior mens teams from disappearing altogether. A joint committee with the junior setup makes the whole club a lot more organised.


Agree with that, sometimes relegation is the best thing for a club. When we got relegated from the 1st division, we'd spent the previous 4-5 years floating around thendrop zone which is very draining for a club. It didn't feel it at the time but with hindsight it was the best thing for the club.

Good luck to Alnwick, good club and we always enjoyed our days out up there when we had you on a Saturday.

You have to conclude that all of this is Good to Form - The FA are clearly dysfunctional and not fit for purpose.

Thanks for posting, any news on relegating four from the two step 2 divisions as well?

The last I heard, the National League was totally against relegating 4 clubs from its step 2 leagues. Maybe the FA will get some balls at some stage & tell them that when we get a 1-2-4-8-16 pyramid. There will be 2 promotions per step 3 league.

Just because they not keen on 4 down doesn't matter. We've all had to accept changes that we not keen on

Can you imagine designing a league system to aid progression of football clubs which has all of the following:
Twice as many relegation spots as promotion spots in each division
Financial hurdles at every step up due to unnecessary ground grading rules
Financial hurdles at every step up due to ever increasing geographic coverage
A ground grading system which favours those clubs at the top (capacity 2-3 x average crowd) Vs those at the bottom who need to maintain capacity ~10x average crowds.
A system which favours rich benefactors

You'd think those in charge would help their member clubs instead of erecting giant hurdles at every step so they can achieve their bureaucratic aim of creating a pyramid with a neat 1-2-4-8-16 number series. You couldn't make it up. :lol:

I'd lower the grading rules but yeah who'd have thought travelling would have to exist.

The ground grading system has been a welcome addition in my opinion . As a supporter I know at step 6 I am going to get sheltered cover, seating, hard standing, decent pitch, floodlights etc.

Standards should be maintained. In fact some requirements have been relaxed. 150 seats were needed at step 5 20 years ago, I think this is now 100.

Once a standard is achieved , which all Clubs have, I don't think its difficult to maintain that standard

Not seen anything confirmed, but I'm guessing that Newcastle University must have lost their appeal for the futures to have been released.
